A bed and breakfast (or B&B) is a small lodging establishment that offers overnight accommodation and breakfast, but usually does not offer other meals. Typically, bed and breakfasts are private homes with fewer than 10 bedrooms available for commercial use.
In India, the government is promoting the concept of bed & breakfast.The government is doing this to increase tourism, especially keeping in view the expected demand for hotels during the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.They have classified B&B in 2 categories - Gold & Silver B&B. All B&B will be approved by the Ministry of Tourism who will then categorize it as Gold or Silver based upon the pre-defined criteria.
We all share the pride of hosting Commonwealth Games 2010 in our great city Delhi. Along with this pride there are some concerns that we would like to share with you and address them with your active participation and support. One of these major concerns is the large number of guess we are expecting and limited hotel accommodations available for these tourists.
Towards this, Delhi Government has initiated Bed & Breakfast Scheme and this is where citizens having properties and facilities in Delhi will be lodging in tourist coming from abroad and other states as a paying guest within a regulated frame work. Of course, you will be gaining from the fee charged by the guests, so it is an added source of income as well. If you think you have suitable space and facility to run such an operation, we shall look forward to your participation.
