Hotel management courses in Gujarat receive only 26 applicants

State’s Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) has received only 26 applications this year for four-year hotel management courses, offered at four institutes approved by All India Council for Technical Education, leaving 334 seats vacant.
Bhagwan Mahavir College of Management at Bhartana near Surat has 180 seats, 60 each in hotel management and catering technology, hotel management, and hospitality and tourism administration, but it has not received a single application. Only two candidates had applied at Asia Pacific Institute of Hotel Management at Bhoyani. After the first round of admissions that ended on July 12, 58 seats remain vacant.

An official said, “We will fill up the seats with candidates from other states after the ACPC completes the second round of admissions on July 24.” The ACPC only admits candidates domiciled in Gujarat or having studied in Gujarat.
