At least 10 Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) hotels including the one of the most busy Behrod Hotel, shut down from Friday night.
Out of these, five will close a little later as they are booked for marriage. They are being closed down as a part of RTDC’s plan to wrap up loss making units. The Behrod Motel was one of the busiest hotels under RTDC till flyovers were built. All Rajasthan Roadways buses used to stop there.
The shut down list includes Hotel Jhunjhunu, Hotel Fatehpur, Hotel Jhunjhunu, Hotel Chandravati, Hotel Mahua and others.
The decision about what to do with these huge properties will be taken later. RTDC has the option of either leasing them to private players or selling them off.
The employees of these hotels are being accommodated elsewhere but there is resentment amongst the employees. They have called for a demonstration of Monday.
