During the 73rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on September 16, 2023, the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI), re-elected Pradeep Shetty, director of Maharaja Hotels as its president.

Shetty brings a wealth of experience in his role as the president and has been an active member of the association for over a decade. His longstanding commitment to the industry is further underscored by his role as vice president of the Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI).

In the new term, Nirav Gandhi will continue in office as the senior vice president; Chetan Mehta - vice president; Jimmy Shaw - secretary and Paramjit S. Ghai - treasurer of HRAWI. Gurbir Bedi takes charge as the secretary in the new term.

Over the last year, under Shetty’s leadership, HRAWI spearheaded several campaigns covering various facets of the hospitality industry including food safety, regulatory advocacy, talent retention and development; and sustainability.

“In our on-going commitment towards environmental sustainability, HRAWI is proud to join hands with the Government’s ‘Mission Life’ initiative. Our pledge to save the environment underscores our dedication to adopting environmentally conscious practices within the hospitality industry. Our recent collaboration with IGBC is a significant step in this direction, reinforcing our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting sustainable practices. Together, we aim to create a greener and more eco-friendly future for our industry and our planet,” said Shetty.

HRAWI's activities over the past year included engaging with Government during the Union Budget, collaborating with the Ministry of Tourism, simplifying GST compliance, addressing cyber-bullying, taking legal actions, addressing talent shortage, and taking up the matter of license simplification via recommendations on Ease of Doing Business (EoDB).

“We have been advocating the need to streamline and simplify licensing procedures to enhance the EoDB in the industry and move them online to reduce administrative burdens on applicants. For the prosperity and growth of the industry, it needs a business-friendly environment with reduced administrative complexities. We will continue to engage with the policymakers and the Government to bring around the much-needed changes towards the EoDB initiative,” concluded Shetty.
