Published on : Thursday, November 19, 2020

Businesses concerning hospitality and tourism, which had been affected the most by the corona virus pandemic, are slowly picking up in and around Tirupati, although they are yet to return to pre-Covid-19 levels.

Leisure tourists have started visiting hotels, resorts and hill stations in the Tirupati tourism division, considered as one of the major revenue sources for AP Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC) after Visakhapatnam.

This started happening after the center eased restrictions on the tourism and hospitality sectors. APTDC has restarted its services at the famous hill station – Horsley Hills. It has also opened its chain of restaurants and hotels at Tirumala, Srikalahasthi, Puligundu, Kailasakona and Palamaner.

Before the outbreak, Horsley Hills generated monthly income of Rs. 50 lakh for the corporation. The average annual income from various tourism packages was Rs. 2.5 crore in the Tirupati division. APTDC earn around Rs. 1.5 crore from its seven hotels at various places in the Tirupati division.

Tourism Corporation’s divisional manager R. V. Suresh Kumar Reddy said that in spite of Covid-19 fears, people have resumed their outings. This has increased traffic, especially to Horsley Hills. The hill station earned Rs. 1.24 crore during April–October this year, which is 44 per cent of Rs. 2.81 crore that it generated during the same period last year.

The Corporation’s restaurant at Tirumala alone is now bringing in about Rs. 1 lakh per day. Earnings from all its wings, except transport, are Rs. 1.72 crore, compared to previous year’s Rs. 4.3 crore.
