Nagpur: A delegation of Nagpur Residential Hotels Association (NRHA) led by its president Tejinder Singh Renu met Jaykumar Rawal – Tourism Minister of Maharashtra congratulating him for various commendable steps being initiated on Tourism front through Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) under his able command, including formation of progressive Tourism Policy 2016 for the State of Maharashtra.
Tejinder Singh Renu along with submitting NRHA memorandum to the Minister said that undoubtedly Tourism potential in Maharashtra has no match; however most likely Annual Budget constrains brings limitations in the pace required. Hence it’s highly recommended that Budget allocation for your ministry is increased suitably.

Likewise washroom facilities within Tiger Reserves are maintained very poorly and needs to be updated and suitably maintained, which can be handed over to private players with their name on such facilities. Even State Roads leading to such Tiger Reserves are mostly in poor state and this makes travel speed extremely slow and tiring, thereby making first impression itself unsatisfactory which causes harm in long run to the Tourism Sector.
Tourism Minister Rawal assured to take suitable decisions on issues raised by NRHA and also advised NRHA to prepare seamless packages for tourists, including guests coming for trade in such a manner that in few hours of free time such guest can enjoy few city’s tourist attractions, which with mouth publicity and social media gradually grows thereby giving immense economic growth to the region. Moreover Nagpur poses to grow considerably in 3-4 years with gigantic input as infrastructure and accordingly we need to be prepared on hospitality sector.
