Limping back to normalcy after global recession,India’s hospitality industry is optimistic to create one lakh jobs in next three years.
Hotels and Restaurants Association (HRA),an umbrella association of hospitality sector,said that the demand will be four times more than the manpower available.
Over next three years,all the institutes will produce 25,000 professionals,HRA’s senior official Sunil Kothari said at a press conference held here today.
“Even considering both government and non government institutions training the students,it wont meet up the demand,” he said adding “considering the expansion plans and new projects planned,the manpower of one lakh is required to serve the need.”
