Star Rating Tied To Safety, Security At Hotels
Hotels will get star ratings only if they are hospitable for disabled persons and have adequate arrangement for safety and security of guests, said a tourism ministry statement. Until now, hotels provided these facilities on voluntary basis. All star-rated hotels across the country will have to meet the new requirements by September next year, said the statement. Hotels in India are rated between one-star and fivestar deluxe on the basis of facilities they offer to the guests.
