Hotel Management in India: The growth and development in hotel industry is the result of raging tourism growth in India and today, the hospitality industry offers a promising career to youth. Being a service industry, the objective of the hotel management lies in providing the best services to its guests. The hotel management course provides in-depth laboratory work for students to acquire the requisite knowledge and skill standards in the operational areas of Food and Beverage Service, Front Office Operation, Food Production, Catering and Housekeeping.

Hospitality education today has become a popular career option and the National Council for Hotel Management catering Technology and Applied Nutrition (NCHMCTAN) receives four times more applications than its fixed intake. India has almost 150 institutes in the approved category, including both public and private sector. And there are 25 food craft institutes, which offer short term courses. These hospitality institutes generate 14,000 graduates, of which 4,000 are diploma and certificate holders. So, 18,000 trained professionals are shaped every year, 22 percent at the skills level and 78 per cent at graduate level. A survey by the Tourism Ministry indicates that there is a demand for 2.03 lakh skilled hospitality professionals every year of which 66 % is at skill level and 34 % at managerial level.

The Ministry of Tourism has developed a master plan to increase intake in existing institutes. More craft and skill-level programmes have been introduced, while hospitality education has been broad based to include hospitality vocational courses at ITIs, polytechnics, at 10+2 level of CBSE and introduction of specific tailor-made skill testing and certification programmes.  In addition to this, the Certified Hospitality Trainer Programme aims to provide employment to meritorious students at IHMs from within its system and honouring them with the best of wages the industry has to offer. By the end of the 11th five-year plan, the target is to have 49 Institutes of Hotel Management and 31 Food Craft Institutes, plus a tourism management centre in the south. But there’s a need to standardize the quality of hospitality education. And, students must be cautious of some of the hospitality institutions in the private sector before seeking admissions in them.
