OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS:
The havoc wreaked by the COVID19 pandemic on the hospitality and travel and tourism industry during the years
2020 and 2021 resulted in heavy revenue loss for the Company in those years. However, the gradual reduction in
the onslaught of COVID19 from the second half of the financial year 2021-2022 onwards has helped the Company to
recover and post profit for the year ended 31.03.2022. The Company has successfully taken advantage of the
increased tourist interest and inflow by developing/offering attractive travel packages at lucrative rates for both
domestic and foreign visitors.
The Company saw the possibility of boosting its earnings from occasions such as marriage receptions, fairs etc. over
and above the rentals. Thus in order to take advantage of the return to normalcy and maximize its earnings, the
Company has commenced its own catering of food and beverages at such occasions/events.
Natural disasters and probable political disturbances remain an imminent threat for the Company’s business.
The current season falling under the F.Y. 2022-23 began on a very encouraging note with high tourist inflow into the
region resulting in fairly positive earnings for the Company in the summer season of 2022 and the Company expects
that this will continue into the coming seasons too. This coupled with relaxation of restrictions imposed under
implementation of COVID 19 protocols as per guidelines laid down by the Government of India in this regard and
high marriage venue bookings is expected to allow the Company to generate higher event based earnings i.e.
rentals from occasions such as marriage receptions, fairs etc including sales of food and beverages thereat.
Therefore the current year is expected to be more profitable.
