Industry chamber CII has urged the Centre to direct all state governments to allow operations of hotels without any restrictions. In a letter to Union Tourism Minister, Prahlad Singh Patel, the Confederation of Indian Industry has also sought measures to provide liquidity support for the tourism and hospitality sectors.

“First and foremost, enable hotels (all categories) - accommodation, restaurants, banquet halls, bars, spas and gyms and their economic activities without any restrictions of timings. Request if the Ministry of Tourism could advise all state governments to allow hotels to operate as per MHA guidelines,” it said. It noted that as per current guidelines, large public gatherings and congregations continue to be prohibited. Marriage related gatherings are allowed but should not exceed 50 people.
