E-Classification, Approval and Occupancy of Hotels
This topic provides information about E-Classification, Approval and Occupancy of Hotels.
Hotels are an important component of the tourism product. They contribute in the overall tourism experience through the standards of facilities and services offered by them. With the aim of providing contemporary standards of facilities and services available in the hotels, the Ministry of Tourism (MOT) has formulated a voluntary scheme for classification of operational hotels which will be applicable to the following categories:
- Star Category Hotels: 5 Star Deluxe, 5 Star, 4 Star, 3 Star, 2 Star & 1 Star
- Heritage Category Hotels: Heritage Grand, Heritage Classic & Heritage Basic
Hotel classification guidelines have been streamlined to make them simple, transparent and time bound. The application for classification and payments of fees have been made through digital platform only and the all other options of application have been done away with. This has ensured the eradication of possibility of delay/manipulation caused by human interference.
