New guidelines could provide those taking flights to India with more information about the country’s hotels.India Tourism London claims that the introduction of a classification system could ensure greater confidence for travellers and ensure accommodation is in line with worldwide standards.

The Confederation of Indian Industry announced hotels will be inspected within three months of application and classification issued within 15 working days.

Raj Kumar Sunani, assistant director at India Tourism London, explained the system could be of benefit to international holidaymakers.

“The classification of hotels as per the new guidelines will give a clear idea about the facilities and amenities available in different star categories of hotels,” said Mr Sunani.

Figures from STR Global recently revealed that India is in the top three nations in the Asia-Pacific region in terms of hotel room construction. In September, the country revealed it planned the development of 47,325 new rooms.
