Speaking on the sidelines at the recently concluded Sirpur Dance and Music Festival, Santosh K Misra, MD, CTB, in an exclusive interview with Food & Hospitality World said that, “We as the government body are not experts in the hospitality business. I believe it is important to give a certain task, in this case running hospitality establishments, to experts in the field. We are hence keen to partner with the right hospitality brands who agree with our thought process. We are here to provide all support to the initiative.”

The tourism board will follow a process of asking for tenders to take this issue forward. The properties are located in the following destinations – Amarkantak, Sirpur, Bastar, Dhamtari, M hasamund, Raipur, Ambik pur and Balod.
