CERTAIN CONVENTIONS, USE OF FINANCIAL INFORMATION & MARKET DATA AND CURRENCY OF PRESENTATION Certain Conventions Unless otherwise specified or the context otherwise requires, all references to "India" in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus are to the Republic of India, together with its territories and possessions and all references to the "US", the "USA", the "United States" or the "U.S." are to the United States of America, together with its territories and possessions. Financial Data Unless stated otherwise, the financial data in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus is derived from our restated standalone financial statement for the F.Y. 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and six (6) months period ended September 30, 2010. The section titled "Financial Information" beginning on page 208 also mentions our restated consolidated financial statement for the F.Y. 2010 and six (6) months period ended September 30, 2010. Our restated standalone and consolidated financial statements are based on our audited standalone and consolidated financial statements respectively prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP, the Accounting Standards and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act and are restated in accordance with the SEBI (ICDR) Regulations. Our fiscal year commences on April 1 and ends on March 31 of the next year, so all references to a particular fiscal year are to the twelve-month (12) period ended March 31 of that year. In this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, any discrepancies in any table between the total and the sums of the amounts listed are due to rounding-off. All the numbers in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus have been presented in lakhs or in whole numbers where the numbers have been too small to present in lakhs. There are significant differences between Indian GAAP, U.S. GAAP and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Accordingly, the degree to which the Indian GAAP restated financial information included in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus will provide meaningful information is entirely dependent on the readers level of familiarity with Indian accounting practices. Any reliance by persons not familiar with Indian accounting practices on the financial disclosures presented in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus should accordingly be limited. We have not attempted to explain those differences or quantify their impact on the financial data included herein, and we urge you to consult your own advisors regarding such differences and their impact on our financial data. Any percentage amounts, as set forth in the sections titled "Risk Factors", "Our Business", "Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" beginning on pages 15, 133 and 304 respectively of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, unless otherwise indicated, have been calculated on the basis of our restated standalone financial information prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP. For definitions, see the section titled "Definitions and Abbreviations" beginning on page 1 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. In the section entitled "Main Provisions of the Articles of Association" beginning on page 444 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, defined terms have the meaning given to such terms in the Articles. Use of Industry and Market data The section titled "Industry Overview" beginning on page 115 has been derived from a report titled "Indian Hotel Industry, March 2011" that the Company has commissioned Credit Analysis & Research Limited ("CARE") to prepare a report (the "Report"). CARE has obtained the information set forth in the Report from its databases and other sources available in the public domain identified in the Report. CAREs methodologies for collecting information and data, and therefore the information discussed in the "Industry Overview" section, may differ from those of other sources, and does not reflect all or even necessarily a

11

comprehensive set of the actual transactions occurring in the industry. The "Industry Overview" section also includes certain projections and estimates that are based on certain assumptions regarding contingencies and other matters that are not within the control of the Company, the BRLMs, CARE or any other person. These assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and actual results may differ, perhaps materially, from those projected. CARE has given and has not withdrawn its written consent to the issue of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus with the inclusion herein of its name and all references thereto and to the inclusion of the Report, including extracts of the Report, in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, in the form and context in which it appears in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. While the Company has taken reasonable actions to ensure that the Report and the market share and industry data and forecasts have been extracted accurately and in their proper context, neither the Company nor the BRLMs have independently verified any of the data and forecasts from CARE or from third party sources or ascertained the underlying assumptions relied upon. As a result, you are cautioned against placing undue reliance on such information. Accordingly, no investment decision should be made based on such information. Although we believe that industry data used in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus is reliable, it has not been independently verified. Additionally, the extent to which the market and industry data presented in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus is meaningful depends on the readers familiarity with and understanding of the methodologies used in compiling such data. There are no standard data gathering methodologies in the industry in which we conduct our business and methodologies and assumptions may vary widely among different industry sources. Currency of Presentation All references to "Rupees" or "`" or "INR" are to Indian Rupees, the official currency of the Republic of India. Throughout this Draft Red Herring Prospectus all figures have been expressed in Lakhs, Million and Crores. The word "Lakhs" or "Lakh" or "Lakhs" means "One hundred thousand", "Millon" means "Ten Lakhs" and "Crores" means "Ten Million". Any percentage amounts, as set forth in "Risk Factors", "Business", "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operation" in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, unless otherwise indicated, have been calculated based on our restated standalone and consolidated financial statement prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS All statements contained in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus that are not statements of historical fact constitute forward-looking statements. All statements regarding our expected financial condition and results of operations, business, plans and prospects are forward-looking statements. We have included statements in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus which contain words or phrases such as "will", "aim", "is likely to result", "believe", "expect", "will continue", "anticipate", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "contemplate", "seek to", "future", "objective", "goal", "project", "should", "will pursue" and similar expressions or variations of such expressions, that are "forward-looking statements". All forward looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the relevant forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are not a guarantee of future performance. These statements are based on our managements beliefs and assumptions, which in turn are based on currently available information. Although we believe the assumptions upon which these forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, any of these assumptions could prove to be inaccurate, and the forward-looking statements based on these assumptions could be incorrect. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include but are not limited to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Increased competition or other factors in the hospitality industry; Our ability to meet our capital expenditure requirements and/or increase in capital expenditure; Market fluctuations and industry dynamics beyond our control; Our ability to successfully implement strategy, growth and expansion plans; Our dependence on key managerial personnels; Increase in cost of operations due to several factors including increase in cost of power & fuel, employee remuneration and food inflation; Government approvals for existing and new projects; Our ability to comply with the terms and conditions and other covenants of our borrowings; General economic and business conditions in India and other geographies; Changes in the regulatory framework governing us; and Any downgrading of Indias debt rating by international rating agencies.

For a further discussion of factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our expectations, see the sections "Risk Factors", "Our Business" and "Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" beginning on pages 15, 133 and 304 respectively, of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. By their nature, certain market risk disclosures are only estimates and could be materially different from what actually occurs in the future. As a result, actual future gains or losses could materially differ from those that have been estimated. Forward looking statements speak only as of the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Neither our Company, the Selling Shareholders, our Directors and officers, the Underwriters, nor any of our respective affiliates or associates has any obligation to update or otherwise revise any statements reflecting circumstances arising after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of underlying events, even if the

13

underlying assumptions do not come to fruition.

SECTION II: RISK FACTORS An investment in equity shares involves high degree of risk. The risks and uncertainties described below, together with the other information contained in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, should be carefully considered before making an investment decision in our Equity Shares. These risks are not the only ones relevant to our Company and our business, but also include risk relevant to the industry and geographic regions in which we operate. Additional risks, not presently known to us or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business and operations. To obtain a complete understanding of our Company and prior to making an investment decision, prospective investors should read this section in conjunction with the sections titled "Our Business" and "Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" beginning on pages 133 and 304 respectively, as well as the other financial and statistical information contained in this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. If any of the risks described below actually occur, our business prospects, financial condition and results of operations could be materially affected, the trading price of our Equity Shares could decline, and investors could lose all or part of their investment. Prospective investors should pay particular attention to the fact that we are incorporated under the laws of India and are subject to a legal and regulatory environment that differs in certain respects from that of other countries. Unless specified or quantified in the relevant risk factors below, we are not in a position to quantify the financial or other implication of any of the risks described in this section. Unless otherwise stated, the financial information used in this section is derived from and should be read in conjunction with restated standalone financial statements of our Company as of and for the F.Y. 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and as of and for the six (6) months period ended September 30, 2010, in each case prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP, including the schedules, annexures and notes thereto. Internal Risk Factors 1. The Income Tax Authorities have carried out search and seizure operations at our registered office, various locations where the properties of our Company are situated and the residential premises of our Promoters. In addition, survey proceedings were initiated at the offices of some of our Group Entities. In the event of any demand raised by the IT Authorities may adversely affect the financial condition and results of operation of our Company. In September 2010, the Income Tax Department carried out search and seizure operations under Section 132(1) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 ("IT Act") at twenty four (24) business premises of our Company, residential premises of our Promoters and on various group companies of our Company. During the course of the search and seizure operations, the IT Authorities have impounded certain materials & documents and seized `3.80 lakhs in cash and 1,100 gms of gold and have recorded statements under Section 132(4)/131 of the IT Act of certain officials of our Company including the Promoters, their relatives and Directors of our Company. Further, during the course of survey proceedings carried out under Section 133A of the IT Act, the IT Department has issued impounding orders under Section 133A(3)(ia) wherein certain books, loose papers, diaries, registers and other documents as well as electronic storage devices in the form of hard disc, CDs, pen drive etc. have been impounded for further investigation in the matter. The Deputy Director of Income Tax ("DDIT") has also issued summons under Section 131(1A) to our Company, our Promoter(s), their relatives, group companies of our Company and certain other Company officials requiring them (either personally or through their authorized representative) to be present at the office of DDIT and to furnish the required documents as specified therein.

15

their authorized representative) to be present at the office of DDIT and to furnish the required documents as specified therein notice. HTML filed its reply dated January 4, 2011 to the summons.

Our Subsidiary, Palm Lagoon Backwater Resorts Private Limited, is disputing the claim of the Government of Kerala over a part of the open land portion of its property in Kerala. In the event, an unfavourable order is passed, our Subsidiary may have to vacate this part of the property which may reduce the occupancy rate and the average revenue per room thereby affecting our financials and results of operations. Our Company acquired Palm Lagoon Backwater Resorts Private Limited ("Palm Lagoon") in the year 2009 which owns a piece of land admeasuring 1 Hectare 46 Ares 62 Sq. Mtrs. (the "Land") over which our 'Cambay Palm Lagoon' resort is situated including Block No.12 of Village Perinad, Resurvey No.1 admeasuring 62.45 Ares (the "Disputed Open Land"). One Dr. V. Harikumar, had been in possession of the Land for a period of over thirty (30) years. Dr. V. Harikumar had purchased the Land including the Disputed Open Land from various parties in the year 1964 which was then conveyed in favour of Palm Lagoon by way of a Sale Deed dated January 8, 2003. The Government of Kerala ("Government") by an order dated November 19, 2009 ("Order") passed in terms of Kerala Conservancy Act, 1957, held that the Disputed Open Land is owned by and belonged to the Government and that the same has been encroached upon by Palm Lagoon. The Additional Tehsildar has imposed a penalty of `2 Lakhs (`2,00,000) and has further ordered Palm Lagoon to hand over the possession of the Disputed Open Land to the Government failing which the Government will initiate eviction proceedings against Palm Lagoon in respect of the Disputed Open Land. Palm Lagoon has preferred an appeal under the provisions of Section 16 of Kerala Conservancy Act, 1957 along with a stay petition before the Revenue Divisional Officer, Kollam against the Order. In the event, an unfavourable order is passed after exhausting all judicial remedies, our Subsidiary may have to vacate this Disputed Open Land forming part of its property.

Certain Equity Shares held by our Promoters, have been pledged in favour of our lenders to secure repayment of the loans availed by our Company. Default in repayment of the loans by our Company may lead to invocation of the pledge on these Equity Shares, which may result in dilution of our Promoters holding in our Company. As on the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, our Promoters hold 2,03,69,648 Equity Shares of our Company constituting 78.92% of the total pre-Issue paid-up share capital of our Company. Out of the above, 1,95,60,909 Equity Shares held by our Promoters constituting 75.79% of our paid-up capital have been pledged as on the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Default in repayment of the loans by our Company may lead to invocation of the pledge on these Equity Shares, which may result in dilution of our Promoters holding in our Company resulting in loss of control of our Company. For further details on pledge of Equity Shares, please refer to section titled "Capital Structure" beginning on page 68 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus.

5.

Most of Equity Shares held by our Promoters are pledged with various lenders of our Company which may include the Equity Shares required for minimum Promoters contribution. As on the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, our Promoters hold 2,03,69,648 Equity Shares of our Company constituting 78.92% of the total pre-Issue paid-up share capital of our Company. Out of the above, 1,95,60,909 Equity Shares held by our Promoters constituting 75.79% of our paid-up capital and 96.02% of their total shareholding have been pledged as on the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. For further details, please refer to the paragraph titled "Pledge of Equity Shares" in the section titled "Capital Structure" on page 68 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Our Company and our Promoters shall before the filing of the Red Herring Prospectus, if required, request the lenders with whom the Equity Shares held by the Promoters are pledged, to de-pledge / release [] Equity Shares for a limited period of three (3) years from the date of allotment of Equity Shares under the Issue to enable us to comply with the requirements of the SEBI (ICDR) Regulations. Our Company has already obtained a letter dated August 9, 2010 from Axis Bank Limited (the lead bank of the Axis Bank Consortium) agreeing to de-pledge 40,00,000 Equity Shares of our Promoters before filing of the Red Herring Prospectus with the RoC till the conclusion of lock-in period to be in compliance with the requirements of Regulation 33(1)(d) of the SEBI (ICDR) Regulations. For the aforementioned de-pledge/release of the Equity Shares the lenders may impose certain conditions which our Promoters may be required to fulfill. The Equity Shares so de-pledged / released will be re-pledged with the lenders after the lock-in period of three (3) years from the date of allotment of Equity Shares in the Issue.

Axis Infrastructure Fund I, currently has and upon completion of the Issue may continue to have, a significant shareholding in our Company which may adversely affect the interest of the minority shareholders of our Company. In addition to the above, Axis Infrastructure Fund I, also has a right under the Shareholders Agreement to appoint directors on our Board proportionate to its shareholding in our Company. Our Company and Promoters have entered into a Share Subscription Agreement dated March 28, 2008 ("SSA") with Axis Private Equity Limited ("Axis PE") in relation to the investment of an aggregate sum of `7,500 Lakhs ("Investment Amount") by Axis PE in our Company. As per the terms of SSA, Axis PE subscribed to (i) 34,65,347 Equity Shares of `10 each at a price of `101 per Equity Share ("Investor Shares") and (ii) 4,00,000 Compulsory Convertible Preference Shares ("CCPS") of `1,000 each. Pursuant to the above SSA, our Company, our Promoters and Axis PE have entered into a Shareholders Agreement dated March 28, 2008 ("SHA") to set out to their

18

relationship in relation to the ownership and management of our Company. Subsequent to the execution of the above SHA, Axis PE transferred the Investor Shares and the CCPS to Axis Infrastructure Fund I ("AIF/Investor"), and all rights and obligations under the SHA have since been transferred onto AIF pursuant to a Transfer Agreement dated June 30, 2008. For further details, please refer to section titled "History and Certain Corporate Matters" beginning on page 161 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. AIF is offering a part of its shareholding in our Company to the public by way of Offer for Sale in this Issue. AIF holds 34,65,347 Equity Shares as on the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Further, AIF will be allotted [] Equity Shares pursuant to the conversion of CCPS before filing the Red Herring Prospectus with the RoC. Taking the Offer for Sale portion into consideration, AIF will hold an aggregate of [] Equity Shares upon the completion of the Issue. As per the SHA, as long as AIF owns upto thirty three percent (33%) or more of its initial investment in our Company, AIF will have a right to appoint a nominee director in proportion to its shareholding on the Board. All other rights of the investor under the SHA will terminate on the listing of the Equity Shares of our Company on the Stock Exchange. However, upon the completion of the Issue, as a holder of more than [] of our shareholding, AIFs vote may have a major bearing over the outcome of shareholder resolutions that require a three-fourth majority. The interests of AIF may be different from our interests or the interests of our other shareholders or investors. As a result, AIF may take actions with respect to our business that may not be in our or our other shareholders best interests. By exercising its powers, AIF could delay, defer or cause a change of control or change in our capital structure, delay, defer or cause a merger, consolidation, takeover or other business combination involving us, discourage or encourage a potential acquirer from making a tender offer or otherwise attempting to obtain control of us, which may be in our best interest, or in the best interest of our other shareholders. Further, any sale of Equity Shares by AIF in the future, or the perception that such sales will occur, may adversely impact the price of the Equity Shares trading in the market. 7. Requirement to transfer specified percentage of profits to the Debenture Redemption Reserve (DRR) before declaration of dividend to the shareholders of our Company as per the Companies Act, 1956 and Companies (Transfer of Profits to Reserves) Rules, 1975 may lead to reduction of distributable profits available to the shareholders. Our Company has issued Secured Redeemable Non-Convertible Debentures ("NCDs") to Axis Bank in October 2008 of face value `10,00,000 each aggregating to `25,00,00,000. In terms of Section 117C of the Companies Act, 1956, our Company is required to create a debenture redemtion reserve ("DRR") for redemption of the NCDs. Further, as per the Companies (Transfer of Profits to Reserves) Rules, 1975 ("Rules") in the event of a company declaring dividends, specified percentage of profits shall be required to be transferred to the DRR until such debentures are redeemed. Till these NCDs are redeemed by our Company, specified percentage of profits will have to be transferred to the DRR which may lead to a reduction in the amount of distributable profits to the shareholders. 8. Reduction or less than anticipated stay by guests or members at our properties may result in a loss of revenue generation opportunities and adversely impact our revenues. In the event of reduction or less than anticipated stay by our guests or members at our properties at any given time, may lead to a large number of unused apartments and other facilities. This could also lead to a loss of revenue generation opportunities from other activities offered along with stay such as spa, sports and entertainment facilities. Our revenues from such additional facilities may get affected due to reduction or non-use of our properties which may adversely impact result of our operations.

Increase in supply of quality hotels and resorts in Tier II cities by our competitors may have a material adverse effect on our business and operations. Our existing properties are situated at Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Jaipur, Udaipur, Bangalore, Kerala, Neemrana and Goa. We propose to develop properties at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik from the Proceeds of the Issue. Most of our existing and proposed properties are located in Tier II cities which have been rapidly growing in the recent past attracting our competitors to enter these markets. Various hotel companies are developing properties in these Tier II locations which may in the near future increase the supply of rooms considerably leading to competition and consequent reduction of occupancy and room rates. We compete not only against other national and international chain of hotels and resort, but also single property owners. We may in the future experience increased competition from existing or new companies entering the Indian hospitality industry. Due to increased competition, we could experience downward pressure on our room rates, lower demand for our club and vacation ownership memberships, reduced margins. In this environment, if we are unable to compete with the new and existing competitors with respect to the rates, services and amenities offered by them, it may have an adverse impact on our business and results of operations.

10.

The properties taken by us on short term lease or management contract basis may not be available for a longer period of time, which may limit our growth prospects and adversely affect our business. Our properties situated at Goa and Bangalore are available to us on a short term lease & management contract basis respectively from third parties for a period of five (5) years. If the lessors or owners of these properties do not renew the lease agreements or management contracts with us or on terms acceptable to us or if we are unable to enter into agreements with other lessors or owners of other properties, our room inventory may be affected. This would limit our growth prospects and adversely affect our revenues accruing from these locations.

11.

Lessor of our Goa property has invoked arbitration against our Company for non-payment of lease rentals since December, 2010. Mr. Jose Augustine Fernandes, the lessor our Goa property i.e. Cambay Beach Resort has filed a Civil Misc. Application (30/2011) under Section 9 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 before the Court of Principal District Judge, North Goa, at Panaji for (i) an injunction against our Company from damaging the property or removing the furniture, fixtures and (ii) for payment of monthly rentals from the month of December 2010. The lessor has alleged that our Company has delayed and neglected the payment of rent since December 2010. Our Company is in the process of preparing and filing a reply to the above application.

12.

We are exposed to risks related to in-house development of our properties. Our in-house team of engineers and managers develop our properties. Our property at Cambay Sapphire, Neemrana is partially operational with 60 rooms and our Company is in the process of increasing the room inventory by further development of 50 rooms which shall be operational by F.Y. 2012. Our Company also intends to develop our proposed properties at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik to be funded from the proceeds of the Issue. As a part of our activities, we have developed most of our own properties through an in-house team of engineers with the help of civil and labour contractors. The compliance of these civil and labour contractors with our construction schedules and budgets are not fully under our control. Our development activities are also subject to risks relating to: the inability to obtain, or delays in obtaining, all necessary zoning, land-use, building, occupancy, sales and other required governmental and local regulatory permits and authorizations;

20

construction costs or delays at a property may exceed original estimates which could make the development uneconomical or unprofitable; the possibility of fines and penalties being imposed on us due to non-compliance with statutory requirements by the contractor; and the ability to obtain adequate financing to complete the acquisition, construction or renovation work at our properties. Any of the above risks, should they occur, could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operation and financial condition. 13. Downgrading of our credit ratings would increase our cost of borrowing funds and make our ability to raise additional funds in the future or renew maturing debt more difficult. Our non-convertible debentures are rated LBBB+ in September 2010 by ICRA Rating Services. Downgrading of our NCD credit rating may not only increase our cost of raising funds but also affect our ability to renew maturing debt at a competitive rate. A downgrade in our credit ratings and an inability to renew maturing debt at a competitive rate may also adversely affect the perception of our financial stability. For further details on our NCDs, please refer to section titled "History and Certain Corporate Matters" beginning on page 161 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus.. 14. Our indebtedness and the conditions and restrictions imposed by our financing arrangements could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business and operations. The agreements entered with banks and financial institutions by our Company contain certain restrictive covenants and shall require the prior written approval from lenders for matters such as: undertaking any new projects modernize, expand; enter into borrowing arrangement either secured or unsecured with any other banks, financial institution, company or otherwise; conveying, selling, leasing or otherwise disposing of or mortgaging or otherwise creating a charge on all or any part of our Companys assets; create any further charge, lien or encumbrance over the assets and properties of our Company; issuing any debentures; declaring dividends; accepting deposits from public; changing the capital structure; undertaking any drastic change in management; undertaking any scheme of amalgamation or restructuring; lending funds or investing in group companies, undertaking guarantee obligations on behalf of any other firm/company including group companies; entering into any contractual obligation of a long-term nature or affecting our Company financially to a significant extent; changing any practice regarding the remuneration of directors by means of ordinary remuneration or commission, scale of sitting fees etc.; Pay guarantee commission to the guarantors whose guarantees have been stipulated/ furnished for the credit limits sanctioned; undertaking any trading activity other than the sale of products arising out of our own operations; permitting any transfer of controlling interest; repaying monies brought in by promoters/principal shareholders/directors/ and their friends and relatives by way of deposits, loans and advances; and Repayment of unsecured loans/ deposits raised by our Company for financing a project.

21

While our Company has obtained the No Objection Certificate from its lenders, there can be no assurance that we will be able to comply with the above covenants or that we will be able to obtain the consents necessary to take the actions we believe are required to operate and grow our business. Repayment of certain loans may be demanded at any time by our lenders pursuant to terms of the agreements. An event of default under any of these loan arrangements, if not cured or waived, could have a material adverse effect on us. 15. Our Company has availed unsecured loans from other entities which are payable on demand. Any short notice for repayment may have an impact on financials of our Company. As on February 28, 2011, our Company has availed unsecured loans including fixed deposits aggregating to `1,159.99 Lakhs from various entities. These loans/ deposits maybe recalled any time by these entities. In the event that these loans are required to be re-paid at short notice, our Company may have to arrange for additional funds at higher costs which may have an impact on financials of our Company. 16. Disruptions in the operations of our properties, services & facilities could affect our business and results of operations. Our business involves providing services, amenities and facilities such as food items, consumables or other utilities & services to our customers and guests. Maintaining an inventory of such particular requirements demands significant logistical effort. A failure in our operational and delivery systems, shortages or interruption in the supply of essentials (caused by weather or otherwise) and a resultant failure to maintain the frequency of deliveries to our properties or the quality of the deliverables may impact the ability of our properties to service our customers, thus affecting our reputation and sales. Failure to provide the deliverables could also be impacted by reasons beyond our control, such as a strike by freight and transport operators. Furthermore, any unavailability or breakdown of equipment, such as refrigerators, boilers, air-conditioners, laundry equipments installed in our properties may hamper the timely delivery and sales of our rooms and other facilities which may have an adverse effect on our business operations. 17. Our business is seasonal in nature. Revenues in the hotel industry are generally higher during the second half (October to March) of each fiscal year as compared to the first half (April to September) of the fiscal year. The impact of such seasonality is mitigated to some degree by attracting corporate customers who are less sensitive to seasonal variations than tourists. Further, any disturbances or disruptions caused due to extreme climatic conditions in a particular season may lead to a drop in the number of corporate customers thereby leading to a reduction in our revenues and can have a material adverse impact on our financial performance. As a result of this, the quarter on quarter comparison of historical results may not be accurate or a meaningful indicator of our future performance. 18. We may be unable to identify, acquire and new develop properties, which would have a material adverse effect on our growth prospects. In order to grow our business, it is important to identify suitable land at strategic locations and successfully negotiate and finalise the terms on which the land is proposed to be acquired. Our growth may be adversely affected by other factors, some of which may be beyond our control, including the following: the availability and cost of acquisition of land or property; our ability to compete successfully for acquisition of land or property; the availability of adequate financing; development and management costs; and securing required governmental or local authority permits and approval;.

22

19.

In addition, while we may have undertaken the required due diligence of the land prior to acquiring it, there can be no assurance that we may not have inherited a defective title to the land. Any such factors or other factors affecting our ability to acquire the desired land, will affect our business and our ability to develop new properties, resulting in an adverse effect on our revenues and results of operations. Instances of food-borne diseases, as well as widespread negative publicity regarding food quality or other health concerns may affect our business and operations in general and our food and beverages sales in particular. Negative publicity, real or perceived, about food quality or other health concerns or similar issues could materially adversely affect us, regardless of whether they pertain to our own properties or operated by others. We cannot guarantee that our operational controls and employee training will be effective in preventing food-borne illnesses, adulteration and other food safety issues that may affect our properties. Food-borne illness or adulteration incidents could be caused by customers, employees or food suppliers and transporters and, therefore, could be outside of our control. Any publicity or advisory issued by regulatory authority relating to health concerns or the perceived or specific outbreaks of food-borne diseases, adulteration or other food safety issues attributed to one or more of our properties could result in a significant decrease in sales of our food & beverages and could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

20.

Our operating results depend on the effectiveness of our marketing and advertising programs. Our revenues to a great extent depend upon brand building through marketing and advertising. Our marketing and advertising programs may not be successful and we may fail to attract new customers and retain existing customers. If our marketing and advertising programs are unsuccessful, financial and human resources deployed for this purpose would not be fruitful and our results of operations could be adversely affected.

21.

The hotel industry is subject to significant regulations. Failure on our part to adhere to these regulations may attract penalties or other directives from the regulators. We are subject to numerous laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate, including those relating to the preparation and sale of food & beverages and health & liquor licensing laws. Our properties are also subject to laws and regulations governing relationships with employees in such areas as minimum wage and maximum working hours, overtime, working conditions, hiring and terminating of employees and work permits. Furthermore, the success of our strategy to expand our existing properties, acquire new properties or to develop new properties is contingent upon, amongst other things, receipt of all required licenses, permits and authorizations, including local land development and use permits, building and zoning permits, environmental, health and safety permits and liquor licenses. Changes or concessions required by regulatory authorities could also involve significant costs and delay or prevent completion of the construction or opening of a project or could result in the loss of an existing license. Failure on our part to comply with such regulations may adversely affect our business and results of our operations.

22.

The hospitality industry is affected by consumer preferences and perceptions. Changes in these preferences and perceptions may affect the demand for our properties and adversely affect our operations. Hospitality industry is affected by changes in consumer preferences, national, regional and local economic conditions and demographic trends. Market perception of our properties and services may change which could impact our continued business success and future profitability. If we are unable to adapt our services successfully, meet changes in consumer demands and trends, our business and financial condition may be adversely affected.

23

23.

We are required to comply with various standards as prescribed by the RCI from time to time. Failure to adhere to such requirements may result in the declassification or downgrading of our properties and consequently, adversely affect our business. In order to obtain and maintain the star category for our properties, we are required to fulfil and continually comply with certain standards as prescribed by the HRACC and RCI affliation. Such standards may relate to the number of rooms, quality of facilities and services to be provided for classified hotels and resorts. Similarly, most of our properties are affiliated with RCI. Any failure to adhere to the requirements prescribed by the HRACC and RCI may result in the declassification or downgrading of our properties and consequently may adversely affect our business and results of operations.

24.

Our costs of compliance with health, safety and environmental laws are expected to be significant, and failure to comply with existing and new health, safety and environmental laws could adversely affect our results of operations. Our business is subject to national, state and municipal laws and regulations, which govern the handling and storage of food products, as well as the discharge, emission, storage, handling and disposal of a variety of substances that may be used in or result from our operations. Health, safety and environmental regulation in India may become more stringent, and the scope and extent of new regulations, including their effect on our operations, cannot be predicted with any certainty. In case of any change in health, safety or environmental regulations, we may be required to incur significant costs on, amongst other things, health, safety and environmental audits and monitoring, pollution control equipment and emissions management. We could also be subject to substantial civil and criminal liability and other regulatory consequences in the event that a health or environmental hazard occurs at any of our properties, or if any of our operations results in contamination of the environment, including the spread of any infection or disease. If such incidences are determined against us leading to civil and criminal liability and other regulatory consequences, our business and operations may be adversely affected.

25.

We are subject to operating and other risks common to the leisure and hospitality industry. Our financial results are affected by room rentals and occupancy achieved by our hotels, our ability to control cost of developing and running rooms and the success of our food & beverage operations. Further, our operating margins would be adversely affected by increase in electricity, insurance and environmental compliance expenses. Our properties would have to be renovated periodically to keep up with the changing trends and such renovation may involve significant development and maintenance costs. In addition, our business is subject to risk relating to change in preferences of our guests and members and increase in costs due to inflation that may not be fully offset by price and membership fee increase for our products and services. Our inability to manage the above risks would have a negative impact on our profitability and financial position.

26.

Disruptions or lack of basic infrastructure such as our electricity supply and water supply could adversely affect our operations. The hotel business being a part of the service industry is dependent on customer satisfaction for sales and growth. Although, we have provided diesel generators for electric supply and borewell connections for continuous water supply as a back-up support to these essential utilities, any major disruption in the basic infrastructure could affect the operations of our properties and services to our guests which may have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

24

27.

Any failure to adhere to our standard operating procedures and have effective quality control systems at our properties without which our business, reputation, results of operations or financial condition will be adversely affected. The performance and quality of our services at our properties are critical to the success of our business. These factors depend significantly on the effectiveness of our quality control systems and standard operating procedures which in turn, depend on the skills and experience of the hospitality personnel, the quality training program, and our ability to ensure that such personnel adhere to our policies and guidelines. Any failure or deterioration of our quality control systems could have an adverse effect on our business, reputation, results of operations and financial condition.

28.

We may undertake management contracts, acquisitions, investments, divestitures or strategic relationships in the future which may pose management and other challenges. We may execute management contracts and undertake acquisitions, investments, divestitures or strategic relationships in the future as part of our growth strategy. We may be unable to identify suitable target that complement our business, and even if we are able to identify suitable acquisition targets or properties for management contracts, we may not be able to acquire targets on commercially reasonable terms. In addition, these management contracts, acquisitions, investments, divestitures or strategic relationships, may not necessarily contribute to our profitability, may divert the attention of our management or require us to assume high levels of debt or contingent liabilities, as part of such transactions. Additionally, we could experience difficulty in combining operations and cultures, and may not realize the anticipated synergies or efficiencies from such transactions. Our ability to successfully implement management contracts or integrate acquisitions will depend on a number of factors, including our ability to market and sell our properties and our ability to manage acquired properties in a manner that results in customer satisfaction. There is no assurance that we will be successful with respect to any of these factors. These difficulties could disrupt our ongoing business, distract our management and employees and increase our expenses.

29.

Any inability to manage our growth or implementing our business strategies effectively could disrupt our growth prospects, business and reduce our profitability. We have experienced good growth in recent years and expect our business to continue to grow significantly. Although we plan to continue to expand our scale of operations through organic growth and investments in other entities, we may not grow at a rate comparable to our growth rate in the past, either in terms of income or profit. We expect our future growth to place significant demands on our management and operations, and require us to continuously evolve and improve our financial, operation and other internal controls across the organization. In particular, continued expansion increases the risks discussed in this section as well as other risks. As part of our growth strategy, we have diversified into the education space and other verticals or services in the hospitality sector. However, such new business initiatives may not be successful. This could hamper our growth prospects and may also damage our reputation. The success of our business will depend greatly on our ability to implement our business and strategies effectively. For further details, please refer to section titled "Our Business" beginning on page 133 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Even if we have successfully executed our business strategies in the past, there can be no assurance that we will be able to execute our strategies on time and within the available financial resources, or that we will meet the expectations of our targeted clients. Our inability to manage our business and strategies could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and profitability.

25

30.

The success of our hospitality education business carried out under CIHM depends on the number of student enrolments. Our inability to attract students to enroll for our courses offered at our various CIHM centers may decline our revenues from hospitality education business. Our Company has set up CIHM centers at Gandhinagar, Jaipur and Udaipur for training students intending to make a career in the hospitality industry. Our Company further intends to launch a CIHM center at Neemrana, Rajasthan within F.Y. 2012. The success of our CIHM centers primarily depends on the number of student enrollments for our courses. Our ability to attract students to enroll for our courses depends on several factors such as our ability to offer new courses, enhancing existing courses in response to changing industry needs, students demands, faculties, expanding our geographic reach, effectively marketing our courses to a broader base of prospective students. Our CIHM centers had enrolled 748 students till date for its various education courses. While we believe that number of students enrolling for the various courses offered at our CIHM centers will continue to grow, however there is no assurance of similar growth in years to come and any slowdown in enrollments may lead to a decline in our revenues from the education services segment.

31.

The success of our CIHM centers depends on experienced and capable team of faculty members. If we are unable to hire, train and retain qualified faculty members across our CIHM centers, our hospitality education business may be adversely affected and our recognition by accrediting universities and institutions may be withdrawn. We believe that our faculty members including visiting faculties contribute to our overall performance by providing good quality training to the students and thus enable us to maintain our brand and reputation. Failure to attract/retain qualified faculty members who have the necessary domain expertise or failure to provide continuous training to our faculty members with the changing student expectations, examination pattern and other key trends that are necessary to effectively deliver the training may affect the pace of our growth and teaching quality across all our CIHM centers in different locations. Also, non-availability of qualified faculty in one or more of our locations may affect the hospitality education business of our Company. In the event we are not able to adhere to the standards of imparting hospitality education and training to students as per our arrangement with universities and institutions which have recognized us for their courses, we may lose our recognition or the same may be withdrawn by these institutions.

32.

The success of our education programmes which are affliated to universities and institutions depends on preferences of students to obtain qualifications from these universities and institutions. Our Company has various education programmes for hospitality education which are affliated with universities and institutions viz. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), American Hotel & Lodging Education Institute (AHLA) and Punjab Technical University (PTU). While we believe, we may be in a position to provide necessary infrastructure, experienced faculty members, quality content, we may not be in a position to influence the preferences of students in choosing our education programmes affiliated with these universities and institutions over those provided by other institutes and universities.

33.

Our inability to manage the timing of vacation requests of our vacation ownership members could lead to member dissatisfaction and result in loss of business. Our members have the flexibility to choose the time (within certain seasonal limitations) and location for their vacations. If more than anticipated numbers of members apply for a vacation at the same resort on the same dates, we may not be in a position to satisfy their vacation requests. Declining members the usage of their requested period and location may lead to member

26

dissatisfaction, which could have an adverse effect on our reputation, growth and results of operations. 34. Our vacation ownership members could be dissatisfied and our future sales for such service offerings could be affected if our properties do not qualify for participation in an exchange network or if we lose our affiliation with RCI. The attractiveness of vacation ownership interest is enhanced by the availability of exchange networks that allow our members to exchange their occupancy rights in a participating network resort. Five (5) of our properties are affiliated with RCI. Under our agreements with RCI, we are required to maintain certain standards at our RCI affiliated properties and our inability to maintain such standards would result in the affiliation being withdrawn by RCI. We cannot be certain that we will be able to continue to qualify our Resorts or any future properties for participation in the RCI network or any other exchange network. If such exchange networks cease to function effectively or if RCI withdraws their affiliation with us, our members could be dissatisfied and the sales of vacation ownership packages could decline, which may adversely affect our business and results of operations. 35. Once we enrol a member for our vacation ownership package, we have a long term commitment to service such member. Our inability to maintain and operate our properties to service such members may have an adverse effect on our reputation, revenues and results of operations. Upon enrolment of a member to our vacation ownership packages, we have an obligation to service our members for a period of 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, 25 years as the case may be. Servicing of our members requires us to maintain our properties at certain specified standards for such number of years. There can be no assurance that we will be in a position to service our members for the entire tenure at their level of expectation and at reasonable costs that may provide suitable returns during the membership period. Our inability to maintain and operate our properties may have an adverse effect on our reputation, revenues and results of operations. 36. Our operations are subject to hazard and other risks, and could expose us to liabilities, loss in income and increased expenses. Our hospitality business operations are subject to risks inherent in our services, such as theft, vandalism including hazards such as work accidents, fire or explosion that may cause injury and loss of life, severe loss, damage and destruction of our property and environment. Some of such incidents which may or may not be caused as a result of negligence or fault of ours could also result in imposition of civil or criminal penalties on us. In addition, such events could affect our business, reputation, financial condition or results of operations. 37. Our insurance coverage may prove inadequate to satisfy claims against us, and we may be subject to losses that might not be covered in whole or in part by existing insurance coverage. We maintain insurance for various risks, including risks relating to fire, construction, accidents and other similar risks. However, in some cases, we may not have obtained the required insurance coverage or such insurance policies may have lapsed. We also do not carry any key-man insurance. Our properties may be subject to damage resulting from earthquakes and other natural disasters additionally some of our properties are situated in areas that are subject to cyclones. Should an uninsured loss or a loss in excess of insured limits occur, or our insurers decline to fully compensate us for our losses, we could incur liabilities, lose capital invested in that property or lose the anticipated future income to be derived from that property, while remaining obligated for any indebtedness or other financial obligations related to our business. Any such loss could result in an adverse effect to our financial condition.

27

38.

Disruptions and other impairment of our information technologies and systems could adversely affect our business. Any disruption or other impairment in our information technology capabilities could harm our business. Our business depends upon the use of sophisticated information technologies and systems for reservation systems, property management, communications, procurement, member record databases, call centers and administrative systems. We cannot assure you that we will be able to continue to operate effectively and maintain such information technologies and systems. In addition, our information technologies and systems are vulnerable to damage or interruption from various causes, including power losses, computer systems failures, internet and telecommunications or data network failures, computer viruses, hacking and similar events. We maintain certain disaster recovery capabilities for critical functions in our business. However, we cannot assure you that these capabilities will successfully prevent a disruption to or an adverse effect on our business or operations in the event of a disaster or other business interruption. Any extended interruption in our technologies or systems could significantly curtail our ability to conduct our business and generate revenue.

39.

Our inability to maintain our relationships with our franchisee sales agents may affect our sales operations. We conduct our sales through various channels, including through franchisee sales agents. If our franchisee sales agents terminate or do not renew their agreements with us, our franchisee network may be reduced, which may affect our sales operations. In addition, while we have certain minimum standards required to be maintained by our franchisee sales agents, absence of adequate monitoring of these sales agents by us or our inability to maintain effective relationships may also affect our sales operations and results of operations.

40.

We are dependent upon the adequate and timely delivery of various quality ingredients by our suppliers and distributors, the failure of which could have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations. Our operations are dependent on adequate and timely deliveries of quality ingredients, including fresh produce. We depend substantially on third-party distributors and suppliers for such deliveries and they may be unable to provide us with a sufficient quantity of quality ingredients to meet our customer demands. If our food quality declines due to the inferior quality of ingredients or due to interruptions in the flow of ingredients and similar factors, customer footfalls may decline and negatively affect our results.

41.

Our Company may face certain liabilities due to inadequately stamped title documents or nonregistration of the title deeds pertaining to certain properties. The title deeds to some of our properties owned/leased by us may not be adequately stamped or registered with the concerned authorities. The potential consequence of this is that the said title documents will not be admissible as evidence in a court of law, until the relevant stamp duties and penalties are paid and the title deeds are registered. Any levies or penalties for such failure may adversely affect our financial position.

42.

We have entered into certain related party transactions and may continue to do so. We have entered into related party transactions with our Promoters, Group Entities, Directors and related entities. While we believe that all such transactions have been conducted on the arms length basis, it is difficult to ascertain whether more favorable terms would have been achieved had such transactions been entered with unrelated parties. Furthermore, it is likely that we will enter into related party transactions in the future. For further details of related party transactions,

28

please refer to Annexure 18 titled "Restated Standalone Statement of Related Party Transactions" in the section titled "Financial Information" beginning on page 208 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. 43. Our business is dependent on a continuing relationship with our clients/customers. Our business mainly envisages running of resorts and hotels. Our business is therefore significantly dependent on developing and maintaining relationships with various individuals and corporate customers. Our inability to meet the expectations of our customers in terms of their preferences and offering attractive packages at competitive prices leading to loss of our clients/ customers may adversely affect our business operations. 44. Our success will depend on our ability to attract and retain our key managerial personnel and the loss of team members may adversely affect our business operations. Our future success depends on the continued service and performance of the members of our senior management team and other key personnel in our business for implementation, management and running of our daily operations, and the planning and execution of our business strategy. There is intense competition for experienced senior management and other key personnel with technical and industry expertise in the hospitality business and if we lose the services of any of these or other key individuals and are unable to find suitable replacements in a timely manner, our ability to realize our objectives could be impaired. Our performance also depends on our ability to attract skilled personnel. If we are unable to do so, it may adversely affect our business and results of operations. 45. Failure to keep abreast with the latest trends in technology may adversely affect our cost competitiveness and may affect our financial condition adversely. Our Company cannot assure that it would successfully implement new technologies effectively or adapt to emerging industry standards. While most of our existing properties are currently equipped with modern technology such as Wi-Fi connections, video conferencing etc we may have to upgrade the same to more advanced technology that may be developed in the future. The cost to upgrade such advanced technology could be significant and could adversely affect our results of operations and financial position. 46. Our lenders have charge over our movable and immovable assets in respect of the financial facilities availed from them. We had been sanctioned term loans (including debentures) to the tune of ` 39,530 Lakhs and working capital loans to the tune of ` 1,400 Lakhs by various banks and financial institutions as on February 28, 2011. Our lenders have a charge over our movable and immovable assets to secure the repayment of loans and other facilities granted to us by them. In the event of any default in repayment of the loans and any interest thereof availed by our Company, the lenders may take the possession of our assets, both movable and immovable charged by our Company in favour of these lenders. For further information on the financing and loan agreements please refer to section titled "Financial Statements" beginning on page 208 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. 47. One of our Promoter, Mr. Sanjay Gupta has acquired/sold certain Equity Shares of our Company in the past one (1) year preceeding the filing of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus, at a price which may be less than the Issue price.

There is no standard valuation methodology or accounting practices in the hospitality and other industries in which we operate. The financials of our Company are not comparable with other players in the industry. There is no standard valuation methodology or accounting practices in the hospitality and other industries. The financials of one company may not be comparable with the other players in the industry. Valuation in the hospitality and other industries in which we operate may presently be high and may not be sustained in the future and also may not be reflective of future valuations of the industry.

49.

Accidents at our properties may lead to negative publicity and public liability consequences. Further, the value of our brand, and our revenue could be diminished if we are associated with negative publicity. Our business is dependent on the trust our customers have in the quality of our service. Any negative publicity regarding our properties, including those arising from a drop in quality of service at our properties and mishaps or any other unforeseen events could adversely affect our reputation and our results from operations. We believe that, we have in place a system of effective safety regulations and disaster management in case of any fire outbreaks or other accidents at all our premises. However, in the event of any accident, we, our directors and key managerial employees may be exposed to civil, criminal and tortuous liabilities.

50.

Our Company and its management are vulnerable to proceedings from customers and regulatory authorities in the event of any consumer dissatisfaction or violation/non-compliance of regulations.

From time to time, our plans may change due to changing circumstances, new business developments, new business or investment opportunities or unforeseen contingencies. If our plans do change, we may need to obtain additional external financing to meet capital expenditure plans,

32

which may include commercial bank borrowings or issue further equity shares or other securities. If we raise additional funds through the incurrence of debt, our interest and debt repayment obligations will increase, and we may be subject to additional covenants, which could limit our ability to access cash flow from operations and/or other means of financing.

For further details on intellectual property rights, please refer to section titled "Our Business" beginning on page 133 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Risk Factors in relation to Objects of the Issue 60. We require government approvals and sanctions to develop properties forming a part of the Objects of the Issue. We intend to develop properties at the Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik to be funded from the proceeds of the Issue. The development of these properties will require approval in relation to construction and other approvals from other governmental authorities and for the operation of these properties. We shall apply for such approvals at an appropriate time. For further details, please refer to the section titled "Government & Other Approvals" beginning on page 350 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. In the event, that we do not receive these approvals in a timely manner or at all or subject to conditions, it may affect the proposed development of these properties and consequently the deployment of the Net Proceeds may be delayed. 61. Our Company has not yet identified land for the proposed development of properties at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik which form part of our Objects of the Issue We intend to develop properties at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik. We are yet to identify the land for our proposed properties at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik and are considering various sites for acquisition. We may not be able to acquire suitable land in this area if favorable terms are not offered to us by land-owners. Any delay in identifying the land will result in delay in developing these properties. For further details, please refer to the section titled "Objects of the Issue" beginning on page 86 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus.

62.

There is no monitoring agency appointed by our Company and our funding requirements are based on management estimates and have not been independently appraised, though it shall be monitored by the Audit Committee. As per the SEBI (ICDR) Regulations, appointment of monitoring agency is required only for Issue size above `50,000 Lakhs. Hence, we have not appointed a monitoring agency to monitor the utilization of Issue proceeds. However, the Audit Committee of our Company, will monitor the utilization of Issue proceeds. Further, our Company shall inform about material deviations in the utilization of issue proceeds to the Stock Exchanges and shall also simultaneously make the material deviations / adverse comments of the Audit Committee public through advertisement in newspapers. Further, our funding requirements are based on management estimates and have not been appraised by any bank or financial institution. In view of the competitive nature of the industry in which we operate, we may have to revise our management estimates from time to time and, consequently, our funding requirements may also change. This may result in the rescheduling of our expenditure programs and an increase or decrease in our proposed expenditure for a particular matter.

63.

We have not entered into any definitive agreements to use the Net Proceeds of the Issue. The Net Proceeds are expected to be used as set forth under the section titled "Objects of the Issue" beginning on page 86 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. We have not entered into any definitive agreements for utilisation of the Net Proceeds of the Issue for development of new properties. There can be no assurance that we will be able to enter into such agreements on terms favourable to us or at all. Accordingly, investors in this Issue will need to rely upon the judgment of our management, who will have considerable discretion, with respect to the use of proceeds. However, we confirm that the use of the Net Proceeds will be at our discretion subject to the Issue proceeds being utilized for the purposes disclosed in the Objects of the Issue.

64.

Developing properties at new locations involves increased risks due to unfamiliarity with the geographical area, demographics and customer preferences. Our new hotel properties are proposed to be developed at Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik. Further, our Company has recently signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) dated January 12, 2011 with Cambay SEZ Hotels Private Limited to first develop the Dahej SEZ property and thenafter operate and manage the same for a period of ten (10) years with an automatic renewal of further period of ten (10) years. These are areas where we have little or no presence or experience. These areas may have different competitive conditions, consumer tastes and discretionary spending patterns than our existing locations, which may cause our new properties to be less successful than our existing properties or incur losses. Developing and operating properties in areas in which we have little or no operating experience and in which potential customers may not be aware of our brand and services may include costs related to the opening, operation and promotion of these properties which may be substantially greater than those incurred in other areas. While we may incur substantial additional costs with respect to these properties, we may not be able to attract customers as compared to our existing properties which may affect our business and results of operations.

External Risk Factors 65. Global economic downturn and adverse market conditions could cause our business to suffer. A slowdown in economic growth in India could cause our business to suffer The developed economies of the world viz. U.S., Europe, Japan and others are in midst of a downturn affecting their economic condition and markets general business and consumer sentiment has been adversely affected due to the global slowdown and there can be no assurance whether the developed economies or the emerging market economies will see good economic growth in the near future. Consequently, this has also affected the global stock and commodity markets. Our performance and growth is directly related to the performance of the Indian economy. The performance of the Indian economy is dependent among other things on the interest rate, political and regulatory actions, liberalization policies, commodity and energy prices etc. A change in any of the factors would affect the growth prospects of the Indian economy, which may in turn adversely impact our results of operations, and consequently the price of our Equity Shares. 66. The Indian economy has sustained varying levels of inflation in the recent past which lead to increased costs which shall have an adverse effect on our profitability and financial condition. India has experienced very high levels of inflation during the period between 2008 and 2009, with inflation peaking at 12.91% in August 2008. The inflation rate was 8.31% in February 2011. In the event of a high rate of inflation, our costs, such as salaries, price of transportation, wages, raw materials or any other of our expenses may increase. In addition to the above, food inflation may increase the cost of our F&B products which may lead to a reduction in our margins. However, we may not be able to adjust our costs or pass our costs which have been fixed during periods of lower inflation to our customers. Accordingly, high rates of inflation in India could increase our costs, could have an adverse effect on our profitability and, if significant, on our financial condition. 67. Our revenues are highly dependent on the travel industry and declines in or disruptions to the travel industry, such as those caused by terrorism, war, natural disasters, epidemics, financial instability or a downturn in economic growth, may adversely affect our financial condition and results of operation. Declines in or disruptions to the travel industry may adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations. Our revenues and profits, and in turn our financial condition, may be adversely affected by events that adversely affect the travel industry. Such events include terrorist incidents and threats (and heightened travel security measures instituted in response to such incidents and threats), natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, floods and other natural disasters), war, bird flu, H1N1 virus and other epidemics and pandemics, the financial instability of air carriers, airline job actions and strikes, increases in gas and other fuel prices and a downturn in economic growth. Public places like hotels and resorts have in the past been targets for terrorist attacks, the latest being the November 26, 2008 terror attacks on hotels in Mumbai. Any violence in public places could cause damage to life and property, and also impact customer sentiment and their willingness to visit such places, which would have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. The occurrence or worsening of any of these types of events could result in a decrease in overall travel and consequently in a decrease in travel by non-local visitors to our resorts. India has experienced natural calamities such as earthquakes, Tsunami, floods and droughts in the past few years. The extent and severity of these natural disasters determines their impact on the Indian economy. Unforeseen circumstances, such as prolonged spells of below normal rainfall and other natural calamities, could have a negative impact on the Indian economy, which could

35

adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operation and the price of our Equity Shares. 68. Any downgrading of Indias debt rating by an independent agency may have a material impact on our operations. Any adverse revisions to Indias credit ratings for domestic and international debt by international rating agencies may adversely impact our ability to raise additional financing, and the interest rates and other commercial terms at which such additional financing is available. This could have a material adverse effect on our business and future financial performance, our ability to obtain financing for capital expenditures, and the price of our Equity Shares. 69. Future sales of our Equity Shares may negatively affect our Equity Share price. Future sales of substantial amounts of our Equity Shares in the public market, or even the potential for such sales, could adversely affect the price of our Equity Shares and could impair our ability to raise capital. All of the shares sold in this offering, will be freely tradable without restriction. The Equity Shares owned by our Promoters and other shareholders are subject to lock-in as detailed under the section titled "Capital Structure" beginning on page 68 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. We cannot assure you that they will retain ownership of our Equity Shares after the lock-in period following this offering. Sales or distributions by our Promoters or other shareholders of substantial amounts of our Equity Shares in the public market could adversely affect prevailing market prices for our Equity Shares. 70. Central and State Governments of India have introduced various schemes to boost tourism. Any withdrawal of such schemes may affect our business. There are certain incentives and concessions granted or provided by the Government of India ("GoI") or the applicable State Governments that are currently being enjoyed by the tourism industry. There is no guarantee that such incentives or concessions will continue or will not be withdrawn by the GoI or the applicable State Governments in the future. 71. Our performance is linked to the stability of Government policies and the political situation in India. The role of the Indian central and State governments in the Indian economy with repect to producers, consumers and regulators has remained significant over the years. Since 1991, the Government of India has pursued policies of economic liberalization, including significantly relaxing restrictions on the private sector. The current Government in India, has continued policies and taken initiatives that support the continued economic liberalization policies that had been pursued by the previous governments. We cannot assure you that these liberalization policies will continue in the future. The rate of economic liberalization could change, and specific laws and policies affecting hotels, foreign investment, currency exchange rates and other matters affecting investment in our securities could change as well. A significant change in Indias economic liberalization and deregulation policies could disrupt business and economic conditions in India and thereby affect our business. Risk Factors in relation to an Investment in our Equity Shares 72. Upon completion of the Issue, our Promoters/Promoter Group may continue to retain significant control over us, which will allow them to influence the out come of matters submitted to the shareholders for approval. Upon completion of this Issue, our Promoters/Promoter Group will continue to own majority of our Equity Shares on a fully diluted basis. As a result, our Promoters/Promoter Group will have

36

the ability to exercise significant influence over all matters requiring shareholder approval, including the election of directors and approvals of significant corporate transactions. Our Promoters/Promoter Group will also be in a position to influence any shareholder action or approval requiring a majority vote, except where it is required by applicable laws or where they abstain from voting. Such a concentration of ownership may also have the effect of delaying or deterring a change in control. 73. Conditions in the Indian securities market may affect the price or liquidity of the Equity Shares. The Indian securities markets are relatively smaller than securities markets in more developed economies. Indian stock exchanges in the past have experienced substantial fluctuations in the prices of listed securities. These stock exchanges have also experienced problems that have affected the market price and liquidity of the securities of Indian companies, such as temporary exchange closures, broker defaults, settlement delays and strikes by brokers. In addition, the governing bodies of the Indian stock exchanges have from time to time restricted securities from trading, limited price movements and restricted margin requirements. Further, disputes have occurred on occasion between listed companies and the Indian stock exchanges and other regulatory bodies that, in some cases, have had a negative effect on market sentiment. If similar problems occur in the future, the market price and liquidity of the Equity Shares could be adversely affected. 74. After this Issue, the Equity Shares may experience price and volume fluctuations or an active trading market for the Equity Shares may not develop. The price of the Equity Shares may fluctuate after this Issue as a result of several factors, including volatility in the Indian and global securities markets, the results of our Companys operations, the performance of our Companys competitors, developments in the hospitality sector and changing perceptions in the market about investments in the hospitality sector, adverse media reports on our Company or the hospitality sector, changes in the estimates of our Companys performance or recommendations by financial analysts, significant developments in Indias economic liberalisation and deregulation policies, and significant developments in Indias fiscal regulations. In addition, no assurance can be given that an active trading market for the Equity Shares will develop or as to the liquidity or sustainability of any such market, the ability of holders of the Equity Shares. If an active market for the Equity Shares fails to develop or be sustained, the trading price of the Equity Shares could fall. 75. Investors will not be able to sell immediately on an Indian stock exchange any of the Equity Shares investors purchase in the Issue. The Equity Shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. Under Indian laws, certain actions are required to be completed before the listing and trading of Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges. Upon receipt of final approval from the Designated Stock Exchange, trading in the Equity Shares is expected to commence within twelve (12) Working Days of the Bid/Issue Closing Date. Our Company cannot assure that the Equity Shares will be credited to investors demat accounts, or that trading in the Equity Shares will commence, within the time periods specified above. 76. We will require final listing and trading approvals from BSE and NSE before trading commences. Our Equity Shares currently have no trading market. We require in-principle, final and trading approvals from the Stock Exchanges before trading can commence. We will apply for such final listing and trading approvals at different stages of the Issue. There can be no assurance that we will receive such approvals on time or at all.

37

77.

Our ability to pay dividends in the future will depend upon future earnings, financial condition, cash flows, capital expenditures and restrictive covenants in our financing arrangements. Our ability to pay dividends in the future will depend on our earnings, financial condition and capital requirements. Dividends distributed by us will attract dividend distribution tax at rates applicable from time to time. We cannot assure you that we will generate sufficient income to cover our operating expenses and pay dividends to our shareholders, or at all. Our ability to pay dividends could also be restricted under certain financing arrangements that we may enter into. We may be unable to pay dividends in the near or medium term, and our future dividend policy will depend on our capital requirements, financial condition and results of operations.

78.

Any future issuance of Equity Shares may dilute the shareholding of the Investor and sales of our Equity Shares by our Promoter or other major shareholders and dilution in net tangible book value may adversely affect the trading price of Equity Shares. Any future issuance of our Equity Shares by our Company could dilute the shareholding of the investor. Any such future issuance of our Equity Shares or sales of our Equity Shares by any of our significant shareholders may also adversely affect the trading price of our Equity Shares, and could impact our ability to raise capital through an offering of our securities. While the entire postIssue paid-up capital held by our Promoters and other shareholders will be locked-in for a period of one (1) year and 20% of our post-Issue paid-up capital held by our Promoter will be locked-in for a period of three (3) years from the date of allotment of Equity Shares in the Issue, Axis Infrastructure Fund I, being a DVCF, is not subject to lock-in and is free to sell the Equity Shares immediately upon listing of our Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges. In addition, any perception by investors that such issuances or sales might occur could also affect the trading price of our Equity Shares. For further information relating to such Equity Shares that will be locked-in, please refer to the sub-section titled "Notes to the Capital Structure" under the section titled "Capital Structure" beginning on page 68 of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus.

Overview of the Indian Tourism Sector The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) have identified India as one of its growth centres in the world. India also ranks first on a relative scale amongst the countries expected to grow their Travel and Tourism (T&T) demand rapidly between CY2008 and CY2018 and ranks second on employment scale, amongst the countries to generate largest employment in absolute terms, according to World Travel & Tourism Council 2008/09. Tourism industry is expected to contribute about 6.7% of Indias GDP and provide employment to approximately 49 million people in CY2010. The foreign exchange earnings from

41

tourism in India rose substantially from Rs 330 billion in CY2005 to Rs 550 bn in CY2009 (Ministry of Tourism). Consequently, the share of India in world tourism receipts increased from 1.1% in CY2005 to 1.24% in CY2009. Inspite of the increasing share, Indias share in world tourism receipts is relatively low. Indias T&T industry size is estimated at Rs.4,322 billion in CY2010 (Ministry of Tourism). Personal travel and tourism dominated with 86% share in total T&T industry size. The size of the Indian Travel & Tourism industry has been growing consistently over last five years. The revenue from the Personal Travel and Tourism has increased at a 5-year Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.97% whereas Business Travel & Tourism has increased at a CAGR of 7.22% during the same period (WTTC). Indian Hotel Industry The Indian hotel industry has enjoyed phenomenal growth in the last decade due to liberalization of the Indian economy, growing business opportunities and stable political environment. Increase in domestic travel due to higher income, concept of week-end holidays, leisure and business trips have also propelled growth. This has also led to higher demand of mid-market and upscale hotels by leisure travels and business travel CARE Research estimates the hotel market size in India at Rs. 126 billion in FY10. Historically, hotel industry has been consistently growing along with the GDP growth. Despite the slowdown in the overall economy in FY08 and FY09, the hotel industry has been nominally impacted majorly due to the reduction in the leisure travel as an obvious result of the slowdown; however the overall industry fundamentals remain intact. The hotel industry can be broadly classified into three broad categories Starred hotels, Approved hotels and Licensed hotels based on general features like Number of rooms, number of restaurants, presence of facilities like spa, swimming pool, shopping mall etc. The Department of Tourism further reclassifies them into 5-D, 5-Star, 4-Star category, while the state governments are responsible for the classification of 3Star, 2-Star and 1-Star hotels. The classification is based on the facilities offered and is done with the aim to provide comfort to the customer. According to the Consolidated FDI Policy, released by DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, the government has allowed 100 per cent foreign investment under the automatic route in the hotel and tourism related industry. Vacation Ownership Industry The growing popularity of the leisure industry in the country today has facilitated alternative hotel product offerings to strengthen their foothold in the market, particularly those with an ownership model that strongly focus on making 'holidaying' a habit. Amongst these include the traditional timeshare and fractional ownership. These are popular holiday models internationally, along with the condo hotels and private residence clubs products. These alternative models, in particular the timeshare product, provides a degree of insulation to key stakeholders (including developers, operators and consumers) compared to the pure hotel product. However, while the risk associated with the timeshare product is lesser compared to the pure hotel product, the ability for the product to maximise returns (from a developer's and operator's perspective) is relatively lower than the hotel product. Timeshare found a place in the tourism policy of India in the year 2001 and the Ministry of Tourism, in the year 2006 introduced a scheme for classification of Timeshare Resorts. Meeting Incentive Conference and Exhibition (MICE) Segment MICE is the new form of business tourism on which Indian hospitality players are increasingly focusing on. It caters to business meetings, international conferences and conventions, events and exhibitions. After the popular spots for MICE such as Hong Kong, Malaysia and Dubai, India is fast gaining its pace in the competition to become an ideal MICE destination. Need for MICE facilities in India are accelerating with

42

notable growth momentum in domestic and international travels. MICE target customers are India Inc. and global business giants. MICE segment not only adds to the banquet revenues, but also leads higher room demand and therefore room revenues. Tourism & Hotel Management Education: Tourism & Hotel Management education have become key concern as the number of travellers increases and markets become more sophisticated in most countries. The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) estimates a boost in the total amount of travel & tourism activity in the next decade. If India is to realize its immense potential in tourism & hospitality sector it must provide international level products matched with technically qualified workforce. The Government of India has been taking initiatives to promote and develop Hospitality & Tourism both in terms of physical infrastructure & services by paying attention on uplifting physical products as well as manpower. As per the WTTCs projections the Indian hospitality industry direct employment is expected to grow from 18.6 million jobs in 2010 to 20.9 million jobs in 2020. This clearly indicates that there would be a huge demand for skilled and trained manpower in the industry. The major challenge ahead before the tourism industry in India is to bridge the gap between the demand-supply of skilled workforce through attracting and retaining the talented skill to serve the industry. The number of institutes imparting Hotel Management course has been increasing leading to overall increase in intake capacity to meet the demand for manpower in Hospitality sector.

For instance, assuming a price band of `20 to `24 per equity share, an issue size of 3,000 equity shares and receipt of five bids from bidders, details of which are shown in the table below, the illustrative book would be as given below. A graphical representation of the consolidated demand and price would be made available at the bidding centers during the Bidding/Issue Period. The illustrative book as shown below indicates the demand for the equity shares of our Company at various prices and is collated from bids from various investors. Bid Quantity 500 1,000 1,500 2,000 2,500 Bid Price (`) 24 23 22 21 20 Cumulative equity shares Bid for 500 1,500 3,000 5,000 7,500 Subscription (%) 16.67 50.00 100.00 166.67 250.00

The price discovery is a function of demand at various prices. The highest price at which the issuer is able to issue the desired number of shares is the price at which the book cuts off, i.e., `22 in the above example. The Issuer and the Selling Shareholers, in consultation with the book running lead manager(s), will finalize the issue price at or below such cut off, i.e., at or below `22. All bids at or above this issue price and cut-off bids are valid bids and are considered for allocation in the respective categories. Withdrawal of the Issue Our Company and the Selling Shareholders in consultation with the BRLMs, reserves the right not to proceed with the Issue anytime after the Bid/Issue Opening Date but before the allotment of Equity Shares. In such an event, a public notice would be issued in the newspapers, in which the pre-issue advertisements were published, within two (2) days of such withdrawal in English national newspaper, Hindi national newspaper and a Gujarati regional newspaper each with wide circulation. The BRLMs through the Registrar to the Issue, shall notify the SCSBs to unblock the bank account of the ASBA Bidders within one

day from the day of receipt of such notification and the Stock Exchanges shall be informed promptly. Further, in the event of withdrawal of the Issue and subsequently, plans of an Initial Public Offering by our Company, a fresh offer document will be submitted again for observations of SEBI. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Issue is also subject to obtaining (i) the final listing and trading approvals of the Stock Exchanges, which our Company shall apply for only after Allotment and (ii) the final RoC approval of the Prospectus after it is filed with the RoC. In the event of withdrawal of the Issue anytime after the Bid/Issue Opening Date but before the allotment of Equity Shares, our Company and the Selling Shareholders will forthwith repay, without interest, all monies received from the applicants in pursuance of the Red Herring Prospectus. If such money is not repaid within eight (8) Working Days after our Company and the Selling Shareholders become liable to repay it, i.e. from the date of withdrawal, then our Company, the Selling Shareholders and every Director of our Company who is an officer in default shall, on and from such expiry of eight (8) Working Days, be liable to repay the money, with interest at the rate of 15% per annum on application money, in proportion to the Equity Shares offered under the Issue, as prescribed under Section 73 of the Companies Act.

Bidders are cautioned that in the event a large number of Bids are received on the Bid/Issue Closing Date, as is typically experienced in initial public offers, which may lead to some Bids not being uploaded due to lack of sufficient time to upload, such Bids that cannot be uploaded will not be considered for allocation in the Issue. If such Bids are not uploaded, our Company, the Selling Shareholders, the Syndicate, BRLMs and the SCSBs shall not be responsible.

In case of discrepancy in the data entered in the electronic book vis--vis the data contained in the physical Bid form, for a particular bidder, the details as per physical application form of that Bidder may be taken as the final data for the purpose of allotment. In case of discrepancy in the data entered in the electronic book vis--vis the data contained in the physical or electronic Bid-cum-Application Form, for a particular ASBA Bidder, the Registrar to the Issue shall ask for rectified data from the SCSBs.

Any revision in the Price Band and the revised Bid/Issue Period, if applicable, will be widely disseminated by notification to the BSE and the NSE, by issuing a press release and also by indicating the changes on the web sites of the BRLMs, at the terminals of the Members of Syndicate and informing SCSBs. Underwriting Agreement After the determination of the Issue Price but prior to filing of the Prospectus with the RoC, our Company and the Selling Shareholders intend to enter into an Underwriting Agreement with the Underwriters for the Equity Shares proposed to be issued and sold in the Issue.

Allocation among the Underwriters may not necessarily be in proportion to their underwriting commitments. Notwithstanding the above table, the Underwriters shall be severally responsible for ensuring payment with respect to the Equity Shares allocated to investors procured by them. In the event of any default, the respective Underwriter in addition to other obligations to be defined in the Underwriting Agreement, will also be required to procure/ subscribe to the extent of the defaulted amount in accordance with the Underwriting Agreement.

Outlook on Indian economy India, the worlds largest democracy in terms of population had a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on purchasing power parity basis at approximately US$3,561 bn in 2009 with Indias GDP at 7.4% for FY10 (Source Central Intelligence Agency Factbook 2009 & RBI). This makes it the fourth-largest economy in the world after USA, China and Japan. During the pre-liberalisation period, India was always considered an agrarian economy adhering to socialist policies with more than 70% of the GDP being contributed by agriculture growth. In 1991, the Government of India (GoI) initiated a series of economic reforms to promote industrial growth to bring in economic stability and growth. The new policies (liberal) included opening of international trade and investment, privatisation, tax reforms etc to transform the economy from

115

socialism to capitalism. Due to this, the low annual growth rate of the economy of India which stagnated at about 3.5% from 1950s to 1980s has increased to above 8% average GDP growth from 2004-2009. This makes India one of the fastest growing emerging economies in the world. CARE Research expects the overall GDP to touch the double digit figure by 2015 at 10% led by higher domestic consumption and growth in exports.

The Index of Industrial Production (IIP), a barometer of the manufacturing activity in the country, has shown a growth of 11.6% in the first quarter of FY11 as against the growth of 3.9% in the same quarter of the FY10. The strong performance of IIP in last few months and the improving business sentiment underscores that the Indian economy is firmly on the recovery path. The recuperating demand conditions on the back of the government stimulus package, improving employment situation, resumption in foreign capital inflows, recovering financial markets and stabilising export demand have supported growth momentum of the Indian economy. GDP growth of 7.4% during FY10 has been one of the highest achieved globally during the difficult times. According to CARE Ratings Economic Research team, Indias GDP growth is expected to accelerate to about 8.5% in FY11 and further increase to 9% in FY12. Robust recovery seen in the last quarter of FY10 is likely to continue the momentum, driven by buoyant performance of the industrial sector, a better performance of the monsoon relative to last year, and sustained resilience of services sector. Indian Hotels and Vacation Ownership Industry Overview of the Indian Tourism Sector Tourism is driven by a wide array of interests like entertainment, sports, religion, culture, adventure, education, health and business. With the advancement of transport, communication and improvement in general economic conditions, the demand for tourism has increased substantially. Tourism is one of the highest foreign exchange earners and employment generating sectors. The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) have identified India as one of its growth centres in the world. India also ranks first on a relative scale amongst the countries expected to grow their Travel and Tourism (T&T) demand rapidly between CY2008 and CY2018 and ranks second on employment scale, amongst the countries to generate largest employment in absolute terms, according to World Travel & Tourism Council 2008/09. Tourism industry is expected to contribute about 6.7% of Indias GDP and provide employment to approximately 49 million people in CY2010. The foreign exchange earnings from tourism in India rose substantially from Rs 330 billion in CY2005 to Rs 550 bn in CY2009 (Ministry of Tourism). Consequently, the share of India in world tourism receipts increased from 1.1% in CY2005 to 1.24% in CY2009. Inspite of the increasing share, Indias share in world tourism receipts is relatively low. Indias T&T industry size is estimated at Rs.4,322 billion in CY2010 (Ministry of Tourism). Personal travel and tourism dominated with 86% share in total T&T industry size.

Domestic tourists play a pivotal role in the tourism industry of India. With increasing job opportunities, higher purchasing power, & rising young population more & more Indians are going for vacations. Domestic tourists grew at a CAGR of 13.5% during the period FY05 to FY09 and are expected to increase by 14.9% p.a. over the next five years (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). The Indian tourism industry experienced substantial increase in domestic tourists due to increase in disposable income and emergence of urban middle class population eager to spend on travel and tourism. As per the ministry of tourism, domestic tourist visits increased by 6.9% and 15.5% in FY2008 and FY2009, respectively. Social travel to meet friends, attend marriage, birth and death and trips for religious purpose, business and leisure were the main reasons for domestic travel.

The Indian hotel industry has enjoyed phenomenal growth in the last decade due to liberalization of the Indian economy, growing business opportunities and stable political environment. Increase in domestic travel due to higher income, concept of week-end holidays, leisure and business trips have also propelled growth. This has also led to higher demand of mid-market and upscale hotels by leisure travels and business travel CARE Research estimates the hotel market size in India at Rs. 126 billion in FY10.

118

Historically, hotel industry has been consistently growing along with the GDP growth. Despite the slowdown in the overall economy in FY08 and FY09, the hotel industry has been nominally impacted majorly due to the reduction in the leisure travel as an obvious result of the slowdown; however the overall industry fundamentals remain intact. Hotel Market Size (in Rs. Billion) Vs. Gross Domestic Product (in Rs. Trillion)

(Source: CARE Research) The hotel industry can be broadly classified into three broad categories Starred hotels, Approved hotels and Licensed hotels based on general features like Number of rooms, number of restaurants, presence of facilities like spa, swimming pool, shopping mall etc. The Department of Tourism further reclassifies them into 5-D, 5-Star, 4-Star category, while the state governments are responsible for the classification of 3Star, 2-Star and 1-Star hotels. The classification is based on the facilities offered and is done with the aim to provide comfort to the customer.

Demand Drivers for the Hotel Industry Key factors like stable socio-political environment, good connectivity, tourism promotion, visa availability, ample presence of tour and travel agents etc are the major attractions for foreign tourists. The demand for hotel accommodation primarily emanates from Leisure tourist, both domestic and foreign Business tourist, both domestic and foreign. The primary business destinations in India are Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune and primary leisure destinations are Kerala, Goa, Jaipur, Agra, and Kolkata etc. Due to this most of the premium hotels and hotel chains have presence in these locations. 1. Good economic growth - The tourist arrivals are primarily dependent on rising economy and thereby rising disposable income. Also, in a period of good economic growth, there is a rise in business tourists as companies do not resort to cost cutting in those times. Mega Sports Events Sports events like World Cup Cricket, Asian Games etc leads to arrival of domestic and foreign tourists and hence higher occupancy rates for hotels in those locations. Medical Tourism India is now a preferred destination for medical tourism due to availability of specialty medical services at affordable costs. Rise in medical tourism will drive up demand for the hotel industry. Changing demographics Young India is more eager to spend on discretionary items and Indias share of wallet towards discretionary spending is expected to shift from 52% in 2005 to 70% by 2025. India has also seen an increase in personal final consumption expenditure on hotels and restaurant from Rs.245 billion in CY01 to Rs.990 billion in CY09. State propagandas Recently, the state governments have started to advertise the state tourism through various campaigns. Some of the states involved in the state tourism propagandas are Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Goa etc., Upcoming Tier II and Tier III cities: With the rising land prices in the Metros and Tier 1 cities, the companies are moving towards the Tier II and Tier III companies to expand their operations. With the development of the companies in these cities, they will experience a surge in the business travelers thereby, driving growth in the hotel industry in these cities. Government Initiatives: (a) Incredible India Campaign: It is the first marketing initiative of its kind. It was conceptualized in 2002 with the primary objective of creating a distinctive identity for the country. The campaign has over the years successfully established India as a high-end tourist destination. At the same time 'Atithi Devo Bhavah Program' was introduced to create awareness among the people about the effects of tourism and sensitize people about the preservations of our cultural heritage and keep the surroundings clean. Announcement of open skies policy for peak season travel: Open skies is an international policy concept which calls for the liberalization of rules and regulations on international aviation industry most specially commercial aviation - opening a free market for the airline industry. Its primary objectives are: (i) To liberalize the rules for international aviation markets and minimizes government intervention the provisions apply to passenger, all-cargo and combination air transportation and encompass both scheduled and charter services; or

To adjust the regime under which military and other state-based flights may be permitted. India has entered into the open skies policy with USA and ASEAN, thereby driving growth in the number of tourists flocking in and flocking out from these countries Upgradation of key airports/ construction of new airports: Upgradation of the existing airports and construction of airports in the smaller cities will bring about a boost in the air travel thereby driving demand for the hotel industry in India.

(Source: CARE Research) ARR, Occupancy Rate (OR) and tariff structure The robust growth experienced in tourist arrivals has stimulated considerable growth in the Indian hospitality industry, particularly in relation to ARR and OR. ARR across the industry grew at a CAGR of 10.7% during the 5-year period FY05 to FY10 (FHRAI). Due to sub-prime crisis in second half of FY09 coupled with terror attack in November 2008, the hotel industry witnessed recessionary conditions leading to a sharp decline in ARR & OR in FY 09 compared to FY08. Sharp correction in occupancy rates was seen in Mumbai, Chennai, NCR, Goa & Ahmedabad. Cities like Pune & Bangalore too witnessed lower occupancy levels as many of the IT/ ITES companies started making hotel accommodations within their own campuses.

Ahmedabad - a fast growing business destination Ahmedabad, the financial capital of Gujarat is the seventh-largest metropolitan city in India. It is predominantly a business destination. Historically Ahmedabad has enjoyed the reputation of being a major centre for trade and commerce. It is a growing centre for education, information technology and scientific industries. The city has a thriving textiles, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and petrochemicals industry. The growing population of the city has led to a boom in the retail industry. The city of Ahmedabad is a wellestablished business destination with almost 85 per cent of the hotel clientele comprising business travellers. Domestic travelers account for 63 per cent of guests while the remaining 37 per cent are foreign nationals (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). Due to its proximity and connectivity with Mumbai a large chunk of domestic travelers come from Mumbai. The foreign travelers mostly comprise travelers from UK and US. Ahmedabad is the house for some of the prestigious institutions like Indian Institute of Management, National Institute of Design etc., which generates a lot of business for the hotel industry during the placement season (November December). Ahmedabad has a total room inventory size of 861 rooms in the upscale category as of CY2010 (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). An addition of 590 rooms is expected over the next 3-4 years. The maximum room inventory coming up is along the Sarkhej-Gandhinagar Highway. Huge investments made under the Vibrant Gujarat, will drive growth in the tourism industry in Gujarat, as it will attract more business tourists. This is due to the upcoming IT/ITeS and pharmaceuticals industry coming up along the SG Highway. Crown Plaza, Ista and Aloft are some of the upscale category brands coming up with a hotel on SG Highway The average room rates in Ahmedabad grew at a CAGR of 7 per cent from Rs.2, 572 in FY06 to Rs.3, 367 in FY10 (FHRAI). The highest growth in average room rates was witnessed in 2007-08 when the room rates almost grew by 100 per cent. This kind of growth can be attributed to boom in the economy and increased business travel. The occupancy levels peaked out in 2007-08 to 74.9 per cent. A steep fall in occupancy levels was experienced in 2008-09 (FHRAI). This fall can be attributed to the fall in business travel due to the global economic slowdown. With a lot of supply coming up in the next 2-3 years the occupancy rates are expected to fall thereby leading to a rationalization of average room rates. The players will have to decrease their room rates in order to maintain the occupancy levels thereby leading to a correction in average room rates. The correction is expected to be upto a tune of 8-10 per cent.

Goa, an established tourist destination Goa which is located on Indias west coast in the Konkan region is the most popular tourist attraction in India. It is also known as Pearl of the Orient. It attracts approximately 1.5 million tourists every year. It accounts for approximately 12 per cent of the foreign tourist arrivals in the country. Goa is known for its coastline and beaches. Goa is visited by a large number of international and domestic tourists each year. Domestic tourists constitute almost 60 per cent of total tourist arrivals. Goa has a coast line of about 105 km and inland water ways up to 250 km, resulting in active fishing and shipping industries which are the major contributors to the state economy. Its Mormugao sea port is largest port exporting iron ore. During the off season (May-September), MICE and domestic tourists are the key revenue generators for the hotel industry. The hotels offer attractive discount packages to woo the customers during the off season eventhough, Goa is becoming a 365 day tourist destination due to the increase in the discretionary income of the younger age group increasing culture for weekend vacation as well as establishment of casinos. Foreign tourists mostly visit Goa during the peak season (October- April). Charter tourists form an important sub-segment of international visitors. A significant number of these tourists prefer to stay in midscale accommodation. However, there is a small but fast growing trend of upscale charter arrivals particularly from Russia and the UK. Goa has a total room inventory size of 3,310 rooms (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010) in the upscale category as of CY2010. An addition of approximately 1,120 rooms is expected over the next 3-4 years. Owing to the largest coastline and rich cultural heritage Goa enjoys the position of being a key tourist destination, both domestically and internationally. During the peak season the proportion of business and leisure travelers is around 10:90, whereas, during the off season the hotel thrives on MICE and domestic travelers. Apart from leisure, the shipping industry also attracts tourists to Goa. The average room rates in Goa grew at a CAGR of 4.5 per cent from Rs.3, 994 in 2005-06 to Rs.4, 757 in 2009-10 (FHRAI). The ARRs dipped by a sharp 12 per cent in 2009-10. The occupancy levels fell from 66.7 per cent in 2005-06 to 63.1 per cent in 2009-10 (FHRAI). The fall can be attributed to the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008. Due to the terrorist attacks foreign countries issued negative travel advisories leading to mass cancellations in Goa. The hotels have cut their ARR by 10-15 per cent in 200910 to woo the customers (Industry Interactions). Going forward a revival is expected in the Goa tourism industry as it is an attractive tourist destination in India. The room rates are expected to rise by 5-10 per cent in 2010-11 and the occupancy levels would grow by 5-6 per cent. (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010) Jaipur, a princely tourist destination Jaipur, popularly known as the Pink city is the busy capital of desert land, Rajasthan. The very structure of Jaipur resembles the taste of the Rajputs and the Royal family. It is a major national and international tourist destination.

Jaipur has a total room inventory size of 1,888 rooms in the upscale category as of CY2010 (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). An addition of approximately 910 rooms is expected over the next 3-4 years. Owing to the proximity to the airport. Tonk Road enjoys the maximum inventory. During the peak season the proportion of business and leisure travelers is around 40:60, whereas, it gets MICE and business travelers during the off-season. The key industries which have bought the thrust in the hotel industry in Jaipur are Gems and jewellery, IT/ITeS, auto and auto components, textiles etc., The average room rates in Jaipur grew at a CAGR of 16.3 per cent from Rs.2, 220 in 2005-06 to Rs.4, 059 in 2009-10 (FHRAI). The highest growth in average room rates was witnessed in 2007-08 when the room rates almost grew by 100 per cent (FHRAI). This kind of a growth can be attributed to boom in the economy and rising income levels leading to the increased levels of business and leisure travel. The blasts in Jaipur in 2006-07 and exorbitant hike in room rates led to a steep fall in occupancy levels in 2007-08. The situation was worsened by the recession setting in. The recession in the west led to a fall in foreign tourist arrivals. The situation is expected to see a revival in 2010-11 onwards. The occupancy rates would see a revival upto a tune of 5-6 per cent in 2010-11(CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). The room rates would see a slight revival in 2010-11. The incremental room supply is likely to result in some ARR and OR consolidation but the cities strong exposure to the domestic and international market is likely to facilitate demand for the increased room inventory. Lucknow, a developing tourist destination Lucknow, popularly known as the city of nawabs, is the capital city of the state of Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow has always been a multicultural city, and flourished as a cultural and artistic capital of North India in the 18th & 19th centuries. Courtly manners, beautiful gardens, poetry, music, and fine cuisine patronized by the Persian-loving Shia Nawabs of the city are well known amongst Indians and students of South Asian culture and history. Lucknow is placed among the fastest growing cities of India and is rapidly emerging as a manufacturing, commercial and retailing hub. This unique combination of rich cultural traditions and brisk economic growth provides Lucknow with an aura that refuses to fade away. Lucknow has developed as a metro city of Uttar Pradesh. The hotel luxury segment in Lucknow, currently comprise three 5-star hotels, The Piccadilly, The Clarks Avadh and The Taj. The hotels expected to come up in the luxury segment are Radisson Sahara City Homes and Mall-cum-Hotel Parsvnath Planet Plaza which will be managed by the Fortune Park Hotels Limited. The average room rates in Lucknow grew at a robust CAGR of 25.5 per cent from Rs.2, 060 in FY06 to Rs.5, 109 in FY10. However, the occupancy levels declined sharply from 75 per cent in FY06 to 58.7 per cent in FY10. The decline can be attributed to the steep rise in the average room rates. Outlook and Concerns for the Hotel Industry Outlook The long-term prospects of the tourism industry in India including the hotel industry looks bright with stable political government and India being one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The strong domestic demand has partially helped India to emerge strongly from the global economic recession. CARE Research estimates the hotel industry in India to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 11.8 per cent over in the next five years (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). Buoyancy in economy, rising discretionary income, growing culture of weekend vacation and increased business travel are likely to propel growth in the hotel industry. Domestic leisure tourists will continue to dominate the domestic demand for hotel rooms in the low, economy and medium segment. Whereas, the rise in foreign tourist arrivals and business travelers will drive the demand in the upscale and luxury segment. CARE Research expects the FTAs to grow at a CAGR of 6.9 per cent (FY09-FY15) (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). The tourist arrivals from United Kingdom (UK), United States of

127

America (USA) and Bangladesh will continue to dominate the flow of foreign tourist arrivals in India. Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh are the states which will top the list of states attracting the foreign tourist arrivals in India. CARE Research estimates DTAs to grow at a CAGR of 14.9 per cent from FY09 to FY15 (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010). The domestic tourist arrivals will be the main growth driver for the hotel industry in India. Strong recovery in the manufacturing and service sector after a slump in FY08 and FY09 injected growth in the Indian economy. The growth in the economy translated into a higher personal discretionary income leading to a higher spending power amongst the consumers. The economy is expected to remain buoyant over the next five years, thereby giving a boost to consumer spending and thus driving the demand for the hotel rooms. Gross Domestic Product (in Rs. Billion) Vs. Domestic Tourist Arrivals (in Millions)

Source: CARE Research CARE Research estimates the hotel room inventory to grow at a CAGR of 4 per cent (CARE Research Indian Hotel Industry Report 2010), from the level of 177,173 rooms in FY09 to 224,000 rooms in FY15. About 60 per cent of the rooms expected to come up would be in the mid-market and economy segment across metros, tier I and tier II cities, whereas the balance 40 per cent would be in the upscale segment at key locations. The key brands coming up are Westin, Novotel, Radisson, Hyatt, Lalit, Orchid, Ista, Aloft, JW Marriott, Dusit D2, Sofitel, and Shangri-la Concerns The Indian hospitality industry holds immense potential for growth. It can provide impetus to other industries through backward and forward linkages and can generate huge revenue earnings for the country. Even though, the hotel industry in India continues to remain the neglected part of the Indian economy. The main roadblocks besieging the hospitality sector in India are procedural delays, inadequate infrastructure and shortage of quality manpower. The critical challenges which are negatively dictating and adversely affecting the competitiveness of Indian hotel industry are as follows: 1) 2) 3) Acute shortfall of quality hotels Shortage of skilled labour Retaining quality workforce

Vacation Ownership Industry The growing popularity of the leisure industry in the country today has facilitated alternative hotel product offerings to strengthen their foothold in the market, particularly those with an ownership model that strongly focus on making 'holidaying' a habit. Amongst these include the traditional timeshare and fractional ownership. These are popular holiday models internationally, along with the condo hotels and private residence clubs products. These alternative models, in particular the timeshare product, provides a degree of insulation to key stakeholders (including developers, operators and consumers) compared to the pure hotel product. However, while the risk associated with the timeshare product is lesser compared to the pure hotel product, the ability for the product to maximise returns (from a developer's and operator's perspective) is relatively lower than the hotel product. Timeshare found a place in the tourism policy of India in the year 2001 and the Ministry of Tourism, in the year 2006 introduced a scheme for classification of Timeshare Resorts. Meaning & Product Range Vacation Ownership is also popularly referred as Timeshare. A time-share is a form of ownership or right to the use of a property, or the term used to describe such properties. Timeshare properties are typically resort condominium units, in which multiple parties hold rights to use the property, and each sharer is allotted a period of time (typically one week, and almost always the same time every year) in which they may use the property. Timeshares may be on a part-ownership or lease/"right to use" basis, in which the sharer holds no claim to ownership of the property. Product range of the industry is as follows: Deeded ownership The Vacation Ownership owner acquires ownership interest in the immovable property. Time-share ownership, undivided interests, co-operatives and fractional interests are some of the forms of deeded ownership. Right to use It allows Vacation Ownership owner to avail accommodation during a specified week, season or time interval for a specified number of years. Some of the formats are club memberships and holiday licences. Other variations available are fixed period, floating period, rotating week and split weeks. The majority of vacation ownership resorts offer apartments with full or partial kitchenettes and limited services. They have strong self help features and most add-ons such as linen change and house-keeping are additional paid-for services. Vacation Ownership industry in India Timeshare first made its entry into India a little over twenty years ago, bringing in the never-before concept of long-term vacation ownership. Initial formats were just a roof over your head, in a holiday setting the attraction those days was a one-time purchase that gave you free holidays, year after year after year. Today, theres more to it than a long term calendar. The timeshare space is fast changing colour with a spectrum of offerings exotic locations, modern amenities, theme cuisines and professional sport and fitness gurus as holiday evangelists. One can even have locations that offer golf and extreme sport as part of the package. The industry is still in its growth phase with

4,640 Vacation Ownership units 1,46,450 members accounting for 2,41,330 Vacation Ownership weeks

With entry of global hotel chains in Asia, India and China are expected to be potential targets for vacation ownership developers in the long-term. The domestic industry grew at 25% in 2008 against the last five year CAGR of 18% according to Group Resort Condominiums International (RCI). According to AIRDA, young upwardly mobile consumers are getting onto the bandwagon with the resources to make Vacation Ownership purchases early in life. They are also committed to annual holidays, for welcome breaks from highly stressed work environments. Typical profile of Vacation Ownership consumers in India Average age 42 years Average house hold size 4 people Typical children count Between 1 and 2 Membership gender 89.8% male (Source: AIRDA) The Vacation Ownership industry in India is tilted towards West India in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Surat, etc followed by Southern region. Vacation Ownership can also be credited with opening up of new destinations like Coorg and Munnar to tourists across India which was earlier familiar only to region specific tourists. With younger profiles, the timeshare experience now includes fishing, water sports, scuba diving, skiing, rock climbing and trekking. Extended in-house facilities could include health clubs, games rooms, playparks for children, upgraded laundry and dining options. Some resorts even have a compact course for the golf-inclined. Over the years, the industry has seen stability, resilience and flexibility allowing travelers to choose plans, swap locations and trade calendar bookings with considerable ease. The convenience of the pre-paid model further adds the reassurance of being inflation proof. Spa Industry and MICE Segment Spa Industry - A "Spa" facility typically encompasses therapies, treatments, diets and lifestyles and aims at enhancing the wellness of mind and body. The industry in India is still at a nascent stage compared to US and Europe. However, with economic growth, stressed life and increasing foreign tourists the industry has a bright future in the coming years. Northern India has shown the biggest increase in spa development due to steady economic growth. Mumbai, the land of Bollywood is another destination for spa operators due to presence of film stars and big industrial houses. Kerala region, a well known destination for Ayurveda is also witnessing growth. Besides resort spas, other types of spas such as day spas, salon spas, destination spas, club spas, medical spas, cruise ship spas, mineral spring spas and airport spas are also gaining popularity. Spa treatments in India have also a great number of massages including Indian and exotic massages done with herbal and aromatic oils. Sensing the opportunity many international players like MSpa International from Thailand, Aman Resorts from Singapore, XpresSpa from the US and South America-based Acqua Hotels are all set to enter India. Meeting Incentive Conference and Exhibition (MICE) Segment a fast growing hospitality product in India MICE is the new form of business tourism on which Indian hospitality players are increasingly focusing on. It caters to business meetings, international conferences and conventions, events and exhibitions. After the popular spots for MICE such as Hong Kong, Malaysia and Dubai, India is fast gaining its pace in the competition to become an ideal MICE destination. Need for MICE facilities in

130

India are accelerating with notable growth momentum in domestic and international travels. MICE target customers are India Inc. and global business giants. MICE segment not only adds to the banquet revenues, but also leads higher room demand and therefore room revenues. MICE at a nascent stage in India, but potential is huge Even though the inbound MICE segment has been growing at 15% to 20% annually in the past three-four years, it is still at a nascent stage in India. As per industry data, the total world market for MICE tourism was in excess of US$ 280 Bn. Of this, the share of the Asia-Pacific region alone was US$ 60 bn. India accounted for US$ 4.8 bn, which was less than 2% of the world market, highlighting the huge untapped potential in the segment. In terms of the number of meetings, India's share is 1% and in terms of delegate arrivals the share is 0.7% and It ranks 27th in the global meetings market. Indian hospitality is aggressively targeting MICE \In order to tap the high potential, Indian hospitality sector is aggressively targeting MICE tourism. Although MICE facilities in India currently do not match with international standards, hotels across India are in a continual process of upgrading their MICE facilities to cater to this growing segment. India is currently at an inflexion point as far as the conferences and conventions business is concerned. With the advanced technology and facilities, personalised services coupled with immense natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, it has all the necessary ingredients for the success of MICE. New Delhi, Mumbai, Agra, Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin, Goa, Hyderabad, Jaipur Ahmedabad and Kolkata are emerging as important MICE venues in the country. Industry Potential 1. 2. Favorable demographics and rapid economic growth point to a long-term secular uptrend in the domestic demand for hotels for business and leisure International inbound traffic is expected to grow rapidly with increasing investment and trade activity WTTC has identified India as one of the fastest growing countries in terms of tourism demand India has benefited from an aggressive promotion campaign and an out-performing economy The growth momentum in domestic and international travel is expected to receive a further boost with more budget airlines/lower air-fares, open sky policies and expected improvements in travel infrastructure (roads, airports, railways) There are opportunities in all price and value chain segments due to the shortage of hotel stock; plans are on to increase quality accommodation to 200,000 rooms by next three years Need for hotel-asset construction and ownership Low penetration of brands provides opportunities for management contracts and franchising with local hotel owners/developers Need for world-class MICE infrastructure in major Indian cities (Source: Investment commission of India- Tourism overview (www.investmentcommission.in)

Tourism & Hotel Management Education: Tourism & Hotel Management education have become key concern as the number of travellers increases and markets become more sophisticated in most countries. The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) estimates a boost in the total amount of travel & tourism activity in the next decade. If India is to realize its immense potential in tourism & hospitality sector it must provide international level products matched with technically qualified workforce. The Government of India has been taking initiatives to promote and develop Hospitality & Tourism both in terms of physical infrastructure & services by paying attention on uplifting physical products as well as manpower.

CARE Research estimates the hotel industry in India to grow at a CAGR of 11.8 per cent. With the exodus of service providers from the Hospitality sector to supposedly more lucrative industries of business process outsourcing, information technology, retailing, airlines and other areas requiring people with relatively higher customer service orientation and the opening up of the Indian market and a number of hotels on the rise, the market is expected to become an employees market with sufficient alternatives to choose from. The growth of the Indian hotel skyline is also expected to send employee salaries northward. As per the WTTCs projections the Indian hospitality industry direct employment is expected to grow from 18.6 million jobs in 2010 to 20.9 million jobs in 2020. This clearly indicates that there would be a huge demand for skilled and trained manpower in the industry. The major challenge ahead before the tourism industry in India is to bridge the gap between the demand-supply of skilled workforce through attracting and retaining the talented skill to serve the industry. The rampant development of hotels in Tier I and II cities has also ensured that executives and hotel employees have sufficient employment opportunities. The phased and sustained development is expected to allow employees to get employment in their preferred cities as well as in preferred hotels and brands. The development of Tier II cities as extensions of metropolitans across India, such as Pune along with Mumbai and Faridabad and Ghaziabad along with Delhi, would see an outflow of manpower from the more expensive metros to these satellite towns with a relatively lower cost of living. All these aspects definitely shine a bright path ahead for hoteliers across the board and hold the promise of a more satisfying and rewarding career ahead. The quality of the courses in the tourism management being offered by the universities and institutes need to be improved, the courses offered are very theoretical in nature and do not full fill the industrial requirement, the curriculam needs to be revised and should be designed in consultation with the industry, the courseware should be revised frequently to meet the continuously changing requirements of the industry. The number of institutes imparting Hotel Management course has been increasing leading to overall increase in intake capacity to meet the demand for manpower in Hospitality sector. AICTE Approved Hotel Institutes

The number of intakes has increased by 21.15% from August 2007 to June 2009. (Source: MHRD Annual Report 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10)

Our Strategies 1. Increasing number of rooms by developing /acquiring and managing new properties in strategic locations. With the growth in the Indian economy, there has been a substantial increase in business activities from both domestic and international organizations. Our next stage of growth involves the development and management of business properties at strategic business destinations. We will continue to maintain primary focus on providing business class hotels both for domestic and foreign corporate travellers. Currently, we have a total of ten (10) properties across India with an aggregate inventory of 947 rooms. Our property at Cambay Sapphire, Neemrana is partially operational with 60 rooms and in the process of increasing the room inventory by further development of 50 rooms which shall be operational by F.Y. 2012. Our Company has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) dated January 12, 2011 with Cambay SEZ Hotels Private Limited ("Cambay SEZ") to develop and thereafter manage and operate a hotel at Dahej SEZ consisting of seventy five (75) rooms. We also propose to develop properties at new destinations like Lucknow, Raipur and Nasik from the proceeds of the Issue thereby increasing our room inventory from the present 947 rooms to 1,332 rooms by the year F.Y.2013. We intend to further increase the number of our properties in India through management and acquisition of third party resorts. We may from time to time selectively acquire properties on a long-term lease basis and also acquire management contracts of certain properties to add to our room inventory and increase our geographic presence. An increase in our properties and a varied choice of travel destinations will enable us to increase our customers. We will continue to focus on developing and acquiring new properties close to the cities and are open to strategic tie-ups and joint ventures subject to mutually beneficial considerations considering the location, demand-supply factors and possible returns on investment. 2. Optimum utilization of assets by providing various facilities in the same property. We have developed our properties to provide various services and facilities like sports zone, golf course and club facilities, spa, restaurants, conference rooms, convention and business centres, banquet halls, amphitheatres and other facilities for recreation and games. These facilities are profit centres by themselves and optimum utilisation of these facilities may lead to enhanced revenues with increased margins. Further, we intend to supplement our asset base by providing various services related verticals such as vacation ownership, hospitality education, hotel management services, tours and travels solutions in an effort to integrate our business and leverage our brand, assets and services for growth and expansion. 3. Expanding our sales and marketing network. We intend to increase our sale and marketing network to cover various other locations through a mix of branch sales offices, franchised sales shops, Franchisee and Domestic Sales Agents (DSAs). Further, we intend to exploit the overseas markets through a network of Franchisee and PSAs to enhance our global presence and broaden our channels by enrolling new agents and representatives. We intend to increase the visibility of our brand 'Cambay' and our properties and services through various marketing channels such as print media, television, direct mail, ecommerce and on-ground market promotions backed by outbound telemarketing. We believe that we can accelerate our sales and turnover by increasing our distribution network in cities under coverage and add to the number of cities to be covered. We believe that a wide marketing network will facilitate in the identification of our target customers to sell our service offerings.

4.

Intensifying MICE business. We see a lot of potential in MICE business and intend to further exploit the advantage of having properties at strategic locations being close to cities. Due to the high and diverse economic growth in the country over the past few years, Tier II cities in India are rapidly turning into MICE destinations. MICE at such locations convert business meetings and conferences into a memorable experience for the delegates and attendees. We intend to intensely market our properties for MICE business facilitating both domestic and international business meetings and conferences. The advanced technology and facilities available at these properties, warm hospitality and personalized services coupled with immense natural beauty and rich cultural heritage surrounding them adds to the locational advantage which these properties enjoy. We intend to continue our focus on developing the MICE segment at both our existing and proposed properties.

5.

Continue to strengthen our brand 'Cambay'. All our existing businesses viz. hospitality, club membership, vacation ownership and hospitality education are operated under the umbrella brand 'Cambay'. Our vision is to further strengthen and build a reputation in providing premium services thereby creating brand loyalty. We intend to maintain high standards of quality for our guest facilities and services with regular renovation and refurbishment of our existing properties. We intend to project 'Cambay Sapphire' to be identified as a business hotel brand of our Company. Similarly, we intend to project 'Cambay Grand' to be identified as premium business hotel brand of our Company. We shall be investing substantial monetory and non-monetory resources towards the building of these brands so as to achieve the objective of leveraging our brand for growth and expansion through various models like management contracts and acquisitions. We intend to continue aggressively market our brand to our target customers through advertisements in print and electronic media, as well as direct marketing to customers. We believe that our brand building exercise has enabled us to create brand 'Cambay' which has contributed to our growth. We intend to invest resources in strengthening our brand further to make it one of the leading brand in the hospitality industry in India.

6.

Leverage our expertise and experience in managing properties and the brand 'Cambay' for increasing the number of managed properties. Our management includes hospitality professionals who have substantial experience in hotel operations. We presently have ten (10) operational properties having an aggregate inventory of 947 rooms. Out of above one (1) of the hotel at Bangalore is on a management contract basis comprising of 48 rooms. Our Company has recently signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) dated January 12, 2011 with Cambay SEZ Hotels Private Limited to firstly develop the property and thenafter operate and manage the same for a period of ten (10) years with an automatic renewal of further period of ten (10) years. We intend to further leverage on our strong brand and our expertise and experience in the hotel industry by increasing the number of hotels being managed on a management contract basis. We believe this will enable us to create a panIndia presence and a quick foothold in a short span of time. Further, we believe that entering into such management contracts shall enable us to reduce the capital cost involved thus enhancing the return on capital employed. Under such a management contract model, we are also entitled to receive a certain percentage share in the profits as per the terms of the agreement.

7.

REGULATIONS AND POLICIES The following description is a summary of the relevant regulations and policies as prescribed by the Government of India. The regulations set below are not exhaustive, and is only intended to provide general information to the investors and is neither designed nor intended to be a substitute for professional legal advice. We set forth below are certain significant legislations and regulations which generally govern the hospitality industry in India: Legislations related to the hospitality industry: 1. Public Performance License The Copyright Act, 1957 specifies that for the purposes of public performance of Indian or international music a public performance license must be obtained else it will invite criminal action. All those who play pre-recorded music in the form of gramophone records, music cassettes or compact discs in public places have to obtain permission for sound recordings. In India, Phonographic Performance Limited ("PPL") is the sole authority to administer the broadcasting, telecasting and public performance rights on behalf of the music industry. PPL, which is registered with the Government of India, has among its members almost all major music publishing companies in India. These companies have assigned their performing rights in sound recordings to PPL by virtue of which it is the sole designated authority to issue public-performance licenses in the country. 2. Luxury Tax Under the provisions of the state luxury tax legislations, luxury tax is applicable to service providers of luxury goods. Luxury tax levied by the state government forms part of the "room charges" as the customer is required to pay these taxes to the hotel. State luxury tax legislations provide for registration of the service provider under its provisions, and require monthly returns to be filed for such tax with relevant authorities. They also regulate the computation of taxes due to the state, the mechanism of collection of taxes and penalties for not paying the luxury tax on time. 3. The Prevention of Food and Adulteration Act, 1954 The Prevention of Food and Adulteration Act is a central legislation and provides provisions for the prevention of adulteration of food. The State Governments have adopted the Central Act which requires any person/ entity manufacturing / storing/ selling food articles to be registered under the provisions of the Act. 4. Project approval and Star Classification of hotels from the Department of Tourism, Government of India Under the Tourism Policy of the Government of India, any project seeking to establish a hotel in India has an option to seek the classification of the proposed hotel in a star category. The classification in category is issued based on an application made to the Department of Tourism, Government of India. The HRACC inspects and assesses the hotel based on the facilities and services offered by the hotel against a fixed marks sheet, including the assessment of quality of facilities provided. Upon the hotel obtaining a qualifying mark prescribed for the particular status of star classification, and based on a recommendation of the HRACC, the hotel is conferred the status of a Star hotel by the Department of Tourism, Government of India. The Government of India, Department of Tourism approves projects of two types: (i) approvals for starting a Star hotel without apartment facilities and (ii) approval for starting a Star Apartment

157

Hotel. Both these types of approvals involve the same procedure in the following 2 stages: (i) the approval of the Project Report and (ii) the classification of the hotel as a star hotel. 5. Registration of Tourist Trade Act Every state in India has in general a Registration of Tourist Trade Act (the "Tourist Trade Act"). The Tourist Trade Act requires all hotels, travel agents, tour operators, tourist guides, tourist taxi operators and dealers of notified articles and other persons engaged in tourist activities in each particular state to register themselves under the Tourist Trade Act. Under the Tourist Trade Act of each state, some officers of the Tourism Department have been vested with magisterial powers, including the power of compounding in case of cheating, overcharging, harassment, pestering, touting, etc. faced by tourists. 6. The Competition Act, 2002 The main legislation governing competition in India is the Competition Act, 2002 ("Competition Act") which repealed the Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1969 and provided for a modern framework of competition protection. The main objectives of the Competition Act are (i) to provide for the establishment of a commission to prevent practices having adverse effect on competition; (ii) to promote and sustain competition in markets in India; (iii) to protect the interests of consumers; (iv) to ensure freedom of trade carried on by the participants in the markets in India and for related matters. The Central Government has established a Commission to be called the 'Competition Commission of India' ("CCI") whose duty is to eliminate practices having adverse effect on competition, promote and sustain competition, protect the interests of consumers and ensure freedom of trade carried on by other participants, in markets in India. The Competition Act prohibits anti-competitive agreements. It declares void any agreement by an enterprise or association of enterprises which restricts the production, supply, distribution, acquisition or control of goods or provision of services. It recognises horizontal and vertical agreements as having potential of restricting competition in an economy. The Competition Act prohibits abuse of dominant position by any enterprise. Dominant position means a position of strength, enjoyed by an enterprise, in the relevant market in India. Such a position enables a firm to (i) operate independently of competitive forces prevailing in the relevant market; or (ii) affect its competitors or consumers or the relevant market in its favour. The Competition Act regulates the various forms of business combinations and does not prohibit their formation. Under it, no person or enterprise shall enter into a combination, in the form of an acquisition, merger or amalgamation, which causes or is likely to cause an appreciable adverse effect on competition in the relevant market and such a combination shall be void. But, all combinations do not call for scrutiny unless the resulting combination exceeds the threshold limits in terms of assets or turnover as specified by the CCI. Thus, the Competition Act does not seek to eliminate combinations and only aims to eliminate their harmful effects. Industrial Laws: 1. The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 was enacted with the objective to regulate the payment of gratuity, to an employee who has rendered for his long and meritorious service, at the time of termination of his services. Gratuity is payable to an employee on the termination of his employment after he has rendered continuous service for not less than five years: On his/her superannuation; or On his/her retirement or resignation; or On his/her death or disablement due to accident or disease (in this case the minimum requirement of five years does not apply).

Every employer is bound to pay to every employee, in respect of the accounting year, a minimum bonus which is 8.33% of the salary or wage earned by the employee during the accounting year or `100, whichever is higher.

3.

Employees' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 Employees' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 was introduced with the object to institute provident fund for the benefit of employees in factories and other establishments.

The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 prohibits the use of any stream or well for disposal of polluting matter, in violation of standards set down by the State Pollution Control Board. 3.

No person operating any industrial plant, in any air pollution control area shall discharge or cause emission of any air pollutant in excess of the standards prescribed by the State Board in this regard. Tax Regime: 1. Service Tax Act, 1994 The service tax gains its authority from item No 97 in the Union List of Seventh Schedule to the Constitution of India. Section 64 to 96 - I of the Finance Act, 1994, as amended from time to time. Service Tax had been imposed as an indirect tax which is demanded from one person on the expectation and intention that such person shall indemnify at the expense of other person who is consuming such service.

The right to use a mark can be exercised either by the registered proprietor or a registered user. The present term of registration of a trademark is ten years, which may be renewed for similar periods on payment of prescribed renewal fees. Foreign Investment Regime in Hotel & Tourism Sector: Foreign investment in India is governed primarily by the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act ("FEMA"), and the rules, regulations and notifications thereunder, as issued by the RBI from time to time, and the policy prescribed by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, which provides for whether or not approval of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board ("FIPB") is required for activities to be carried out by foreigners in India. The RBI, in exercise of its power under the FEMA, has notified the Foreign Exchange Management (Transfer or Issue of Security by a Person Resident Outside India) Regulations, 2000 (FEMA Regulations) to prohibit, restrict or regulate, transfer by or issue security to a person resident outside India.

Between our ten (10) properties we have an aggregate inventory of 947 rooms with Food and Beverage outlets and convention halls facilitating banquet and MICE business. Our revenue from Hotels and F & B Sales has increased at a CAGR of 109% between F.Y. 2006 and 2010. In the year 2007, we forayed into the business of providing club membership under the brand 'Cambay Club' and in the year 2008 we forayed into the business of the providing vacation ownership under the brand 'Cambay Family Holidays Club'. We provide various facilities to our club members such as golf, lawn tennis, table tennis, squash and other indoor and outdoor games along with additional access and benefits related to Spa and beauty salon, multi-cuisine restaurants, swimming pool & well designed rooms and cottages. As on February 28, 2011, we had 2,920 club members. Our vacation ownership business offers a range of holiday destinations for a pre-determined number of days in a year for a fixed number of years to our vacation ownership members.

Five (5) of our resorts i.e. Gandhinagar, Jaipur (Jamdoli and Kukas), Kerala and Udaipur are affiliated with RCI. Considering a shortage of trained and qualified manpower in the hospitality industry and in order to create a sustained talent pool to drive our growth, we forayed into the hospitality management education space in the year 2008. We have added a new stream of revenue to our business model by setting up education institutes under the brand 'Cambay Institute of Hospitality Management' ("CIHM") at Gandhinagar, Jaipur (Kukas) and Udaipur with necessary infrastructure for training students intending to make a career in the hospitality industry. The three (3) CIHM centres form a part of our properties facilitating a first hand experience to our students of the hospitality industry.

Factors affecting our Results of Operations Our results of operations and financial condition are affected by a number of factors, including the following, which are of particular importance: 1. Demand and supply of hotel accommodation at the places where our existing and proposed hotel properties are located: Our revenues are driven by the occupancy rates and the average room rates at our properties. The demand and supply for hotel accommodation in the areas where our existing and proposed properties are located will impact our revenue drivers. Further, we will continue to face competition from existing as well as new hotels in such areas. Our ability to face the competition in terms of room rates, quality of accommodation and amenities, pricing pressure for our MICE segment and our service levels will also affect demand for our hotel accommodations, MICE and other facilities thereby affecting our results of operations. Seasonality in our operations: Revenues and cash flows in the hotel industry are affected by seasonality depending on the location and category of hotels. Our room revenues are generally higher during the second half of each fiscal year as compared to the first half of the fiscal year. Our club & vacation ownership business and our MICE facilities help us to leverage our assets efficiently during non seasons thereby mitigating adverse impact on our results of operations. Increase in our member base for club facilities & vacation ownerships: Our financial results are affected by the number of club members & vacation ownership memberships we can garner, resulting in an increase in our member base and additional income. We market our products through our marketing team, our marketing tie-ups and the direct sales channel present across the country which we have rapidly expanded in the recent past. We continuously try to innovate and introduce variety of products and schemes to make our memberships attractive for customers. Our Company is the first in India to launch a unique RCI Points System under the name Cambay Family Holiday Club - Points which assures the vacation ownership members, vacation flexibility, variety and complete utilisation by upgrading the traditional "week" into "points" which can then be spent or redeemed for an exchanged vacation. These points can also be used by our vacation ownership members towards car hire, theme park tickets etc. through various point partners associated with RCI. Our ability to increase our member base will directly impact our revenue from this business segment and also our Food & Beverages Sales to some extent thereby affecting our profitability. Ability to acquire and develop our room and resort inventory: Our revenues are also dependent on the number of rooms at our own resorts and through our affiliation/ networks. We have historically been able to build/own properties at destinations such as Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, Kollam, Udaipur and Jaipur. We purchase or lease land and construct/develop our resorts through our internal Project Management Cell. Currently, we operate 10 properties with a inventory of 947 rooms. Our existing properties along with our proposed expansions/ developments will add 365 rooms taking our total room inventory to 1,312 rooms. This will help us to control the quality of the consumer experience and provide them with more options for their business and leisure travel. The ability to build our properties through our internal project management cell which does the designing as well as construction helps us to control cost as well as build quality infrastructure. Food & Beverages: Our Revenues also include income from Restaurants and Banquet functions. Most food ingredients used in the preparations are commodities and therefore subject to price fluctuations as a result of seasonality, weather, demand and other factors. However, Our Company has historically been able to pass increased costs of raw materials to the customers and also our Company is entering in to annual rate contract with supplier for the assurance of supply with minimum rate fluctuation.

Brand recognition: Brand recognition for high quality standards and service levels plays an important role in hospitality business. The recognition and acceptance of our brand has significant contribution to the success of our business segments. Keeping the market dynamics in mind, we need to continuously improve our service levels and the quality of our products and services to provide added value to our customers. We are a customer-centric Company and need to respond in a timely and appropriate manner to the demands and expectations of our business and leisure customers to maintain our brand value. Operating Expenses: Our results of operations are affected by our ability to control the cost of developing and operating resorts and hotels. Though, our resorts and hotels are newly constructed, we will have to renovate them periodically to upgrade the ageing properties to suit the changing demands and patterns. In addition, maintenance of our properties at a sufficiently high standard involves significant expenditure due to high maintenance and development costs. Further, changes in cost of food and beverages operations, staff costs and extent of marketing and advertisements expenses will also affect our results of operations. Regulatory framework in India: Our business and operations are subject to various federal, state and municipal laws and regulations in all of the regions in which we operate, including those relating to the preparation and sale of food and beverages, such as health and liquor licensing laws. Our properties are also subject to laws and regulations governing relationships with employees in such areas as minimum wage and maximum working hours, overtime, working conditions, hiring and terminating of employees and work permits. Moreover, the success of our strategy to expand our existing properties, acquire or develop new properties is contingent upon, among other things, receipt of all required licenses, permits and authorizations, including local land use permits, building and zoning permits, environmental, health and safety permits and liquor licenses. Changes or concessions required by regulatory authorities could also involve significant costs and delay or prevent completion of the construction or opening of a project or could result in the loss of an existing license. Failure by us to renew, maintain or obtain the required permits or approvals may result in the interruption of our operations or delay or prevent our expansion plans and may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Changes in Economic and Political Environment and other Market Conditions: Our results of operations are generally affected by factors such as changes in domestic as well as global economic conditions, level of disposable income of consumers, changes in local market conditions, availability of short term and long term funds at reasonable costs and related factors. The growth in the Indian economy is expected to resume and is expected to be a strong driver for growth in the hospitality sector. It is observed historically that growth in the hospitality sector has direct correlation with the economic growth. Also, a change in spending habits leading to higher spending on leisure as well as business travel has stimulated demand for hotels and resorts. This also leads to indirect growth in our other streams of business which complement our hotel business. Our results of operations are also affected by the political environment in India and globally. In the recent past, terrorism and law & order related issues have lead to the travel advisories being issued by western nations affecting the hotel industry in India. The threat of terrorist attacks and other acts of violence or war also have a direct impact on international travel and may have an adverse impact on our ability to attract international guests. In addition, the hotel industry is vulnerable to natural disasters, the occurrence of which may seriously harm our business. As is typical in the hotel industry, our results of operations have been and will continue to be significantly affected by factors outside our control such as political unrest. Other factors include potential negative changes in travel patterns, government regulation and foreign exchange fluctuations.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk Market risk is the risk of loss related to adverse changes in market prices, which includes interest rate risk and commodities risk. We are exposed to commodity risk to a certain extent, interest rate risk for the borrowings undertaken and deposits and credit risk in the normal course of our business. Commodity Risk We are exposed to market risk with respect to the prices of materials used in construction of our hotel and resorts. These commodities primarily are steel, construction equipments and cement. The costs of these materials are subject to fluctuation based on commodity prices. The cost of materials sourced from outside manufacturers may also fluctuate based on their availability from suppliers. In the normal course of business, we purchase these materials on a contract basis. We currently do not have any hedging mechanism in place in respect of any of the materials we purchase. Interest Rate Risk We are exposed to market risk with respect to changes in interest rates related to our borrowings. Interest rate risk exists with respect to our indebtedness that bears interest at floating rates tied to certain benchmark rates as well as borrowings where the interest rate is reset primarily based on changes in the short-term interest rates set by Indian banks, as well as due to changes in interest rates set by the RBI, which are generally announced through credit policy measures issued twice a year. We have not entered into agreements to hedge risks associated with changes in interest rates. As at September 30, 2010, our secured loan funds aggregated to ` 34,986.79 lakhs, all of which were at floating rates of interest. Inflation Risk Although India has experienced fluctuation in inflation rates in recent years, inflation has not had a material impact on our business or results of operation.
