Hoteliers to display association approved rates of food items
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 10: A joint delegation of Kashmir Hotel and Restaurant Owners’ Federation (KHAROF) and Kashmir Hotel and Restaurant Association (KHARA) called on Minister of State for Tourism Nasir Aslam Wani at Civil Secretariat on Wednesday.
President KHAROF Faiz Bakshi and President KHARA Showkat Chowdhary raised several issues relating to the hotels and restaurants in the Valley with the minister.
They said that some officials of CAPD, Police and Health Departments were demanding certificate of government approval of the rates being charged in the hotels or guesthouses on food items without knowing that such rates countrywide were being fixed by the respective hoteliers’ associations.
They said the hotels, guesthouses, and fast food outlets were facing problem due to unnecessary “intervention” by these officials.
They informed the Minister that the rates have all along been fixed/approved by the associations during the past 65 years and “it is the practice all over the world and that there is no precedent for any government agency/department to fix these rates.”
The delegation told the Minister that every establishment sells food & beverages on the rates mentioned in Menu Card which is presented to every customer before placing the order and it is not the case that the customers are served ghost bills after consuming the food.
The customers have a huge choice of eateries to select from. Moreover, rates are displayed on individual items in Fast Food Joints etc.
The Minister, according to a statement issued here today, instructed the two Presidents that a copy of Menu card approved by the respective associations should be prominently displayed in the hotels/guesthouses or food outlets, whatever the case may be, and rates strictly adhered to.
