Funds crunch halts Chhattisgarh's first hotel management institute

Inaugurated with much fanfare by chief minister, Raman Singh, on the eve of assembly elections in the state in September last year, Chhattisgarh's first Institute of hotel management and catering technology is yet to start regular classes.

Its been almost 10 months since the Rs 19.36 crore building was officially opened with a promise of recruiting students for 2014-15 academic session, but paucity of funds has prevented the institute from getting the mandatory affiliation from National Council for Hotel Management and Catering Technology (NCHM).

As things stand, it is unlikely that regular classes could start before the 2015-16 session, which would be almost a decade after Union government granted permission for the institute in 2006.
