HRANI represents the small, budget and classified hotels up to 5 star deluxe including restaurants and Non-operations / closure of all hotel units located in Delhi is resulting into mass unemployment

We appreciate the Delhi government for taking the much needed step of releasing hotels from attached hospitals but still the order to start normal operationsis awaited, reported Secretary General of the Association.

"We stand in solidarity with the Government to fight with COVID 19 pandemic. Our member units are offering quarantine facilities on subsidized rates but at the same time we request the Government to understand the position of the hospitality industry being highly capital and labour intensive and already reeling under the pressure of cash crunch, Low working capital and hefty fixed expenses due to pandemic.

All sanitisation and social distancing guidelines can be followed thoroughly in Hotels. Hence, we once again request the government to act immediately and allow starting operations in Delhi" says Mr. Surendra Kumar Jaiswal, President, HRANI
Commercial Airport Entry Permits (AEP) reinstated for hotels with HRANI efforts

With the efforts and continued follow up of HRANI (FHRAI-North Region) with the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India, the matter of Commercial Airport Entry Permit (AEP) has been resolved and the Commercial Airport entry permits (AEP) has been re-instated for 5-stars (D), 5-stars and 4-stars hotels. After detailed deliberations, the Ministry of Civil Aviation grants the following:

1. Two commercial AEPs to 4-star hotels.

2. Four commercial AEPs to 5-star and 5-star deluxe hotels.

3. Two commercial AEPs to inbound tour operators having annual turnover of upto 20 crore rupees.

4. Four commercial AEPs to inbound tour operators having annual turnover of upto 20 crore to 50 crore rupees.

HRANI delegation made detailed submission to the Ministry that Commercial AEPs were issued only to hotels to facilitate a seamless arrival/departure of guests. The permits were issued to the hotels after a thorough vetting by a designated committee comprising of officials of Airport Authority of India (AAI), Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).
We are thankful to Secretary, Ministry of Tourism and Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India & other concerned agencies for their
