The Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) is renovating 10 of its hotels, in an effort to give a new lease of life to its properties facing stiff competition from private hotels.

The Corporation will also be giving 34 hotels and motels to private players under the operation and management (O&M) model

A strategy has been chalked out by the Corporation to make its properties attractive and on par with the private hotels, which have outshined them in due course of time.

Noting that the RTDC earlier faced a hurdle in leasing out its hotels due to issues in the title of the properties, he said the department is working to get titles of properties and other assets under the name of the Corporation.
