Sudesh Poddar, Managing Director, Satya Hotels and Natraj Hotel & Resorts has been elected as President of the Hotel & Restaurant Association of Eastern India (HRAEI) with an overwhelming majority at the Annual General Meeting held recently.
The Managing Committee has a new look with T.S. Walia as the President Designate for FHRAI, Pranav Singh as Secretary General and Navin Suchanti of Sinclairs as the Treasurer.
According to Poddar, “The eastern and north-eastern India and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands have immense potential for growth of tourism. Our main focus in the current year will be to work with the various state governments to realise the potential of tourism in the region. One of the major constraints faced by the hospitality industry is the high and complex taxation structure. There are multiple taxes – VAT, Service Tax, Luxury tax, Entertainment tax. Our endeavour will be to network with the state governments in the region to work out a uniform tax structure.”
