New Delhi, April 17, 2021: In its ongoing effort to strengthen the Hospitality & Tourism Industry especially in times of the pandemic, the Ministry of Tourism signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Cleartrip and Ease My Trip on 15th April 2021.
The primary objective of this MoU is to provide extensive visibility to accommodation units that have self-certified themselves on SAATHI (System for Assessment, Awareness & Training for the Hospitality Industry) on the OTA platform.
The MoU also outlines both parties to encourage Units to register on NIDHI and thereby on SAATHI and encourage local tourism Industry with appropriate safeguards for curbing spread of COVID-19.
The idea is also to gather more information on accommodation units in order to gain actionable insights & designing evidence-based & targeted policy measures and to promote safe, honourable, and sustainable tourism.
Cleartrip and Ease My Trip are both leading online sites for travel bugs.
