Integrated Hotel Management Software for Maharashtra Hotels
Posted: Nov 05, 2015
Maharashtra is the coastal state that spans over West-Central India. Maharashtra plays a major role when it comes to the country’s growing hospitality and tourism industry. Mumbai, the capital city is also referred to as the ‘Financial Capital’ of India. Let us take a look at where does Maharashtra stand in the country’s tourism and hotel industry map.
Maharashtra offers a wide variety of tourist attractions to both domestic and foreign visitors. Mumbai is home to British Raj era Gateway of India and several other colonial landmarks. Additionally, the state has many hill stations including Khandala, Lonavla, Matheran and Mahabaleswaram etc. While Pune is known for its old Hindu shrines, Nashik has some of the best wineries and vineyards.
Government initiatives for the hospitality industry in Maharashtra
In order to create a conducive climate for hotel business, Maharashtra government has recently taken some major measures. To ease out the whole process related to application for setting up a hotel, the state has slashed the number of application forms from 71 to 25. This means, applicants can now apply for 25 licenses in just six forms on a digital platform. The state authority also plans to set up a single window clearance facility for hotel projects.
Hotel numbers in Maharashtra set to grow
The state currently receives around 8.4 million domestic and 4.8 million foreign tourists. To accommodate this growing number of visitors, Maharashtra has quite a good number of hotels across cities. According to HVS India, Mumbai had around 13,022 branded hotel rooms in 2014. The same is expected to grow by another 7,896 rooms (up by 61%) by 2018 – 2019. Similarly, there were 6, 159 branded hotel rooms in Pune by 2014. The city will have around 2,620 more hotel rooms (up by 43%) by 2018 – 2019.
