Tourism training programmes affected in Bihar due to pandemic

Monday, March 14, 2022


This year, only half of the annual target of 360 stakeholders has been trained under the TASP, which focuses on cleanliness and increasing soft skills of tourism stakeholders. The TASP training schedule needs to be completed before March, but it is running behind schedule.

The pandemic has not just affected tourists, but also some of the Center’s tourism training programmes in Bihar.

The tourism awareness and sensitisation programme (TASP) and the entrepreneurship programme (EP) are among a few training initiatives, largely impacted by the pandemic, said the officials.

The Institute of Hotel Management, Catering Technology and Applied Nutrition (IHM), Hajipur, a hospitality management school run under the guidance of the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India and the Department of Tourism Bihar, hopes to train 270 trainees this financial year, with three TASP capsules scheduled later this month.

To quote Niraj Kumar, a faculty, food and beverage service at the IHMHajipur,“We have planned three training capsules, of three days’ each, around the Thawe temple in Gopalganj district, SimariaGhat at Begusarai and MandarParvat in Banka district later this month. We got delayed because of the pandemic.”
