The tourist arrivals in India are seasonal in nature, with the bestseason being from September to December followed by a steep fall till May. The period June to September gains momentum again. Once the monsoons are over. Theslack season is generally used for renovation work and the period is characterized bydiscounts to attract clients. High capital expenditure acts as an entry barrier in theindustry with the availability of prime land at economically viable rates being amajor constraint. The gestation period is long and break even normally takes five toeight years to happen. Due to this the established players like Indian hotels, EIH, etc.,have an advantage over foreign majors as they already have good establishments at prime locations.
