    MoTCA Seeks Updation of Hotel Standards
    The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoTCA) is working to update its criteria for hotel and restaurant standards. Keshav Prasad Bimali, the Joint Secretary at the ministry said, also on the cards is the change in the rule so that the hotels will be mandatorily required to register themselves with MoTCA. The code is being updated to accommodate the changes made in various policies and rules four years ago (2064 Bikram Sambat) when the existing code was promulgated, he said.
    According to the existing rules, the hotels do not need to be registered with MoTCA. As a result it does not have a data on the number of hotels in operation. The code needs to be updated to include such requirements, remarked Shambhu Prasad Koirala, a Section Officer at the Hotel Division of the ministry. He said that this update will make it mandatory for hotels to be registered at the ministry and establish a renewal charge.
    The ministry is also planning to form a working committee in coordination with the Hotel Association of Nepal, Nepal Tourism Board, Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management and other concerned bodies for the upgradation and amendment of working directives.
    The ministry said that the standard of existing five-star hotels need to be upgraded to meet SAARC standards. However, the ministry will update the code for five-star hotels only after updating the standards for the tourist-standard hotels. n
