2. ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT AND BUSINESS REVIEW

The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key drivers of growth among the service sectors in India. Tourism has now become a significant industry in India. It is an employment generator, a significant source of foreign exchange for the country. Tourism in India is the third largest foreign exchange earner of the country after gems, jewellery and readymade garments. The booming tourism industry has had a cascading effect on the hospitality sector with an increase in the occupancy ratios and average room rates.

The long term outlook for the Indian hospitality business continues to be positive, both for the business and leisure segments with the potential for economic growth. The tourism and hospitality sector is among the top 15 sectors in India to attract the highest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

The Indian Government has also taken several steps to make India a global tourism hub. The Government has initiated ''Project Mausam'' under which it has proposed to establish cross cultural linkages and to revive historic maritime cultural and economic ties with 39 Indian Ocean countries. Further, the Government plans to cover 150 countries under e-visa scheme by the end of the year. Recently, the Indian Government has also released a fresh category of visa i.e. the Medical visa (M visa), to encourage medical tourism in India. The hotel industry in India thrives largely due to the growth in tourism and travel. Due to the increase in tourism with rising foreign and domestic tourists, hotel sector is bound to grow.

India, after China, is considered as one of the most lucrative hotel markets in the world. The Indian economy has certainly performed creditably compared to most developed and emerging markets of the world in the past years.

2. ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT AND BUSINESS REVIEW

While the new government has been able to project India as a investment hub, in reality, the flow of Foreign Institutional Investments uncover the truth that there is a lot to be done by the new government. However, the policy paradigm by the new government has boosted investors' sentiments strongly apart from a number of global factors. Overall in the past one year the Indian markets have led this rally with substantial increase in the investments in various sectors.

The Indian hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key industries driving growth of the services sector in India. The fortunes of the hospitality industry have always been linked to the prospects of the tourism industry and tourism is the foremost demand driver of the industry. The Indian hospitality industry has recorded healthy growth fuelled by robust inflow of foreign tourists as well as increased tourist movement within the country and it has become one of the leading players in the global industry. The industry is likely to experience robust growth on the back of rising disposable incomes and favorable industry statistics.

The tourism and hospitality sector is among the top 15 sectors in India to attract the highest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). During the period April 2000-February 2015, this sector attracted around US$ 7,862.08 million of FDI, according to the data released by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

The Indian government has realized the country's potential in the tourism industry and has taken several steps to make India a global tourism hub. Some of the major initiatives taken by the Government of India to give a boost to the tourism and hospitality sector of India are as follows:

- The Government of India has set aside Rs. 500 crore (US$ 79.17 million) for the first phase of the National Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY). The 12 cities in the first phase are Varanasi, Amritsar, Ajmer, Mathura, Gaya, Kanchipuram, Vellankani, Badami, Amaravati, Warangal, Puri and Dwarka which will be developed as smart cities.

- The Government of India is extending visa on arrival facility to 150 countries in stages from the current 43 countries. This is a big leap towards the promotion of tourism in India.

In the recent years there are new hotel projects including entry of foreign hotel chains that are coming up in and around Delhi and the other Metropolitan cities. The Indian Hotel room market for ten metros is expected to expand at a compound rate. The supplies of rooms are outpacing its demand. These new hotels have added further competition to the already existing cut throat competition resulting in low tariff but at the same time cost of material that has gone up will threaten the profitability.

2. ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT AND BUSINESS REVIEW

The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key drivers of growth among the services sectors in India. Tourism in India is an employment generator and a significant source of foreign exchange for the country, apart from being an economic activity that helps local and host communities. In 2013, the travel and tourism industry contributed Rs 2.17 trillion (US$ 36 billion) or 2 per cent to the country''s gross domestic product (GDP). This is expected to rise to Rs 4.35 trillion (US$ 72.17 billion) in the coming years.

The tourism industry in India is thriving due to an increase in foreign tourist arrivals (FTA) and a greater number of Indians travelling to domestic destinations than before. The revenue from domestic tourism is likely to grow by 8.2 per cent in 2014 as compared to 5.1 per cent a year ago, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). Hotels are also an extremely important component of tourism industry. India''s travel and tourism industry is expected to grow by about 7.3 per cent in 2014, according to WTTC.

The Government of India has contributed significantly to the growth and development of the industry by providing policy and infrastructural support such as simplification of visa procedures and tax holidays for hotels. Further, the tourism policy of the government aims at speedy implementation of tourism projects, development of integrated tourism circuits, special capacity building in the hospitality sector and new marketing strategies.

FTAs during the period January–March 2014 stood at 21.27 lakh as compared to FTAs of 20.27 lakh during the corresponding period of 2013, registering a marginal growth of 4.9%. FTAs during March 2014 were 6.69 lakh as compared to 6.40 lakh during March 2013, a growth of 4.5 %.

During the year under review the Domestic Tourism Industry remained sluggish with marginal increase of Foreign Tourist Arrivals. But, consequent to the addition of more than 10,000 rooms in Delhi/NCR and other Metropolitan cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangaluru and Hyderabad the Hotel Industry was particularly impacted and your Hotel is not an exception to it. Weak pricing scenario and increase in operating costs in an inflationary environment has particularly affected the profitability of Hotel Industry and your company is equally impacted in such challenging business environment. With the formation of the New Government our economy should re-gain a trajectory of high growth and outlook for the company in expected to grow.

Hotel industry in India is supporting a large number of population.

While reviewing operating performance of the hotel industries it was analyzed that hotel industry in India is recovering from the blows it suffered in the year 2008 first due to financial meltdown in America in September and later due to terrorists attack at Mumbai. The foreign tourist flow in India is substantially reduced by 18-20% during these periods.

2. BUSINESS REVIEW

Hospitality industry is very well knitted with travel and tourism industry. India is the most favourite destination for the global tourists and it experiences huge footfalls as a favourite place of visit because of its vast and rich cultural heritage.

Tourism in India was seen as a mere service sector for a long time. It is being now recognized as an export industry due its multiple advantages. Now it is one of the largest service industries in India with contribution of 6.23% to the National GDP and 8.78% of the total employment in India.

The mood is upbeat in the travel and tourism especially in the Hotel Business. At the Hotel Investment Forum India, Indian and International Hotel chains expressed optimism at the growth potential of the Indian Market and outlined big investment plans for coming years.

The business of Indian Hotel industry is very bright because the kind of the growth expected over the next couple of years or more is in tune of 15-20%. Importantly the Hotel Industry and the Hotel chain groups are very bullish and optimistic about their investment and commitment as far as the growth is concerned. Thus by reviewing the last year trend about the Hotel Industry in India we are hopeful for the better result in the near future.

2. BUSINESS REVIEW

The Hotel & Tourism industry is cyclical in nature and highly susceptible to the macro -environmental changes. Aviation and hospitality are the first to get impacted by adverse environment and the last to recuperate. Often described as fragile industry, the demand for the travel is highly susceptible to the event like economic slow down, wars, disease outbreak and terrorism

The balance sheet of the hotel companies are under stress on account of occupancy levels in major metro station including Delhi and Mumbai. During the current financial year growth have fallen as compared to the previous years. The ARR has also gone down across the major cities by about 20%. The compound effect is expected to result in reduced profitability to the tune of 20-25 percent. Despite the numerous problems tourism industry was one of the largest foreign exchange earners for India. Realizing the potential in India, international & domestic hotel chains were rushing to cash on it. The entry of multinationals and Indian Hotel chains expanding internationally only reinforces the segments untapped business potential. The demand for travel and tourism in India is expected to grow by 8.2 % between 2010-2019 and will place India in the third position in the world. The common wealth game would be the good opportunity to showcase the rich culture heritage of the country to the international community
