An Overview of the Tourism, Hospitality and House Keeping Sector in India

About 90% of workforce in the sector comprises women


It is difficult to pinpoint the exact number of people employed as housekeepers or domestic help in India. The perceived figures vary between 4.2 and 90 million based on different sources. This study estimates the number to be about 6 million, as per various NGO sources

The sector has largely witnessed the rise of the organised or chained segment in the last two decades. This has primarily been driven by the entry of international brands, such as McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Domino?s Pizza, KFC, Subway and others.

Emergence of Quick Service Restaurants, cafes and bars is a result of increasing disposable income and high propensity to spend of the increasingly younger demographic in the country

Further, with increasing working population and proportion of two-income households, there has been an increase in the willingness to eat out or order in

The ?Hunar se Rozgarscheme of the Ministry of Tourism has added housekeeping as a training course on its list of courses and as a result, several new job roles have emerged across the subsectors. This scheme aims to skill youth between 18?28 years with a focus on instilling employable skills in people from the economically weak strata of society.
