Hospitality is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. India's share in total world tourism is a dismal 0.3% as of now. The total number of foreign tourists visiting India is about 6 to 7 million. Countries like Austria, Spain, Britain, France, Thailand attract over 10-75 million tourists annually. One of the reasons for poor Indian share has been the lack of infrastructure. World class hotels are not available except in the metropolitan cities, and these are very expensive when compared to the hotels in other parts of South Asia and South-East Asia. A paradox is distinctly visible when one reads advertisements in the pages of Travel & Tourism of national newspapers.
India has not only to build more hotels but also reduce the tariff considerably. The tourism within India is also growing at a fast pace. No longer are the people prepared to rough it out in Dharamshalas, when on a pilgrimage. They require a decent place to spend the time. The hotel Industry has expanded exponentially during the past decade. There has been a sudden spurt in hotel construction in Mumbai, Delhi NCR other Metros. Earlier the Mumbai had only two 5-star deluxe hotels Oberoi and the Tai Mahal now many new hotels have come up and some more will be open to business during the next few years.
Amongst the existing resorts maximum number of hotel rooms would be in Goa which remains a tourist delight. To run all these hotels the country needs specialized staff trained to look after all the comforts of the Indian and the foreign visitors. The Government of India first opened its catering and hotel training institute in New Delhi in the late 60s. The first competition for admission to this institute was conducted in 1971, The institutes of hotel management and catering are now spread all over the country and a combined admission test is held normally on one of the Sundays in April every year. The admission test consists of English Language and Comprehension, Quantitative Aptitude, General Knowledge, Service Selector, Elementary Science. We have made excellent arrangements for extending coaching in all these subjects.
We would also like to emphasize that a few hotel chains viz. ITC, Taj and the Oberoi also run their own courses to train management specialists for the hospitality sector. The ITC runs its institution in Manipal, Karnataka and the Taj Group have their spacious complex for this purpose in Aurangabad. Realizing the potential in the hotel industry, a number of private operators have also established catering institutes and a few of them also carry the tag of foreign collaboration. It is very difficult to vouch for the standards of the private Institutes, but we will make an effort to get them properly evaluated before recommending them to our students.
Hotel Management offers an excellent career in the hospitality industry, especially with constant expansion of hotels of various categories particularly five-stars in the metros. Delhi and Gurgaon have over 20 five star deluxe hotels and each one of these should be employing 2S0 to 500 executives to man the various sections. A number of additional five star hotels are being set up in the Metros, which will give a further fillip to the hospitality industry. A career in hotel industry offers an excellent opportunity to interact with the corporate elite enabling one to enhance one’s level of social contacts. There is also an added demand for hospitality industry with the sprouting of guest houses, resorts, and many corporate giants opting for their own five star guest houses and restaurants.
