NEWS | Government plans to add 100 budget hotels by 2016 through PPP mode

The Union Government is planning to add 100 budget hotels by 2016 in a bid to encourage the hospitality sector. The tourism ministry wants to set up these hotels through public-private-partnership (PPP) in one, two and three-star categories, besides adding 3,440 rooms by the end of the 12th Plan period (2012-17). The land for building these hotels will be allotted through a “transparent bidding process”, according to tourism ministry’s working group report on the 12th Plan.
