Business Performance Bharat Hotel FY19-20
1. The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group was recording a steady growth in its revenues in the last financial year until the
set-back in the last quarter from January 2020 onwards due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of almost negligible business from January onwards, Bharat Hotel came in the loss in FY19-20.
2. Due to COVID-19, the hospitality sector was affected quite badly. With social distancing, quarantine measures, travel bans, etc., it is expected that hospitality will take a longer time to revive. Plus the fixed cost is the same as before and with revenue declining, Bharat Hotel has faced liquidity issues in the business.
3. In order to increase the revenue during the lockdown, some of the hotels have accommodated doctors on COVID 19 duty at hospitals at fixed rates to be paid by the Government. Apart from this, Bharat Hotel has also started home delivery of bakery, confectionery, and gourmet hampers. The Company is also exploring possibilities of digital channels to make more products and services available to guests like Ayurveda doctor consultancy, wellness packages, chef at home, bartender at home, Kitty comes home, industrial catering.
