India Hotel Room Supply, Capital Investment and Manpower Requirement by 2021
By Manav Thadani, Chairman - HVS Asia Pacific
This research article is intended to provide answers to perhaps the most frequently-asked questions in the past 15 years that HVS New Delhi has been operational. Around mid-last-year, during one of my trips to the Tourism Ministry, I was once again asked if HVS could carry out some research to scientifically quantify the number of hotel rooms required in the coming years; and also determine the potential employment generation that was likely to result from the addition of these rooms. We have put together all our available resources and databases of historical data to estimate these numbers and have further estimated the total capital requirement for this growing sector till 2021.
