SHARE| Hotels Coming up in Delhi?

Economic Times reports that|

As per government estimates, the number of hotel rooms required in the national capital region (NCR) for the Commonwealth Games 2010 is about 40,000. Currently the room supply by branded hotels in five star, mid -market and no frills categories in the region is just 7,000-8,000. Analysts believe that even if you add non-branded hotels in areas like Paharganj it takes up the total room count in NCR to no more than 15,000. And even if you add another 5,000-6,000 additional branded rooms that are expected to be built before the Games, that still leaves NCR with a shortfall of around 20,000 rooms!
