Three ITDC hotels handed over to Rajasthan, Karnataka, Arunachal govts

As part of the disinvestment excerise, the Centre on Wednesday chose to exit three ITDC hotels including Jaipur Ashok and handover them to the state governments concerned.

Following the Centre's surrendering of ownership, "states will have the authority to decide on how these (hotels) will be redeveloped, al also on who with to form joint ventures for their redevelopment et cetera", Jaitley said.

Union Cabinet on Wednesday made a decision to disinvest three ITDC hotels and hand over to State Governments.

The ministry of tourism has to date transferred the properties or units of Hotel Lake View Ashok, Bhopal; Hotel Brahmaputra Ashok, Guwahati and Hotel Bharatpur Ashok, Bharatpur to the state governments concerned.

In addition, "in principle" approval for transfer of Hotel Janpath, New Delhi to ministry of urban development has also been approved by the CCEA.
