The Ministry of Tourism has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with travel portal Yatra to strengthen the country's hospitality and tourism industry, an official statement said on Monday.


The primary objective of the MoU, signed on July 2, is to provide extensive visibility to accommodation units, which have self-certified themselves on SAATHI (System for Assessment, Awareness, and Training for the Hospitality Industry) on the OTA platform, the statement from the ministry said.

“The MoU also outlines both parties to encourage units to register on NIDHI and thereby on SAATHI and encourage the local tourism industry with appropriate safeguards for curbing the spread of COVID-19,” the ministry said.

Through the agreement, the government aims to gather more information on accommodation units in order to gain actionable insights designing evidence-based targeted policy measures and promote safe and sustainable tourism.
