Development of Traditional Dhabas

Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture has emphasised in its 229th report that traditional Dhabas should be developed and maintained with highest cleanliness, hygiene and authenticity of their local cuisine.

It has been incorporated in the guidelines for classification of hotel, which is a voluntary scheme of the Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India. The guidelines provide that classified hotels, will impart training to specific number of people, under the scheme of ‘Hunar Se Rozgar Tak”.
