Govt ropes in 5-star hotels for Village clean-up

first_imgThe government has roped in five-star hotels to spruce up the much-criticised Commonwealth Games (CWG) Village and get it ready for the athletes. Three five-star hotel chains – Oberoi, ITC and the Taj Group – have offered to send their staff to supervise the cleaning up of the Village. All three hotel chains confirmed to Headlines Today that their managers will supervise the housekeeping services at the Games Village. The Hotel Association of India too has stepped in. A three-tier system has been put in place to ensure that all hospitality services at the Village are top-notch. As part of this, volunteers from the association will work round the clock at the Village. All the residential towers inside the Village have been assigned to one Delhi government official each. The officers were pulled out of their regular duties and deployed at the Village. The Hotel Association of India volunteers will report to these officers. They will, in turn, be assisted by the city’s municipality staff. The decisions were taken after Thursday’s CWG review meeting with the prime minister. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit personally supervised the operations at the Village on Friday. She has also allotted areas inside the Village to her ministers.  Scores of cleaners have descended at the Village. They include sweepers, polishers, painters and housekeepers.last_img
