Shankersinh Vaghela

Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) today said it will tie up with various states in the North East to open smaller hotels to cater to growing domestic and foreign tourists’ arrival to the region.

The newly-appointed ITDC Chairman Shankersinh Vaghela, who took charge today, said the public sector undertaking under the Ministry of Tourism is currently talking to various state governments from the region to acquire properties.

“Our plan is to open small hotels, similar to those of motels in the US. These hotels may not be big and five-star properties but smaller ones and may be of three-star or four-star hotels,” Vaghela told PTI. The number of rooms per hotel may vary between 80 and 120 depending upon the property and location, he added.
