TGI Group to enter SAARC region in 2019

https://www.thehindu.com/business/tgi-group-to-enter-saarc-region-in-2019/article25274017.ece

Puducherry-based hotel management company TGI (The Great Indian) Group of Hotels is set to enter the SAARC region next fiscal, according to a top official. “We have almost established a strong foothold in the South,” said Amitava Roy, founder and CEO, TGI Group. “Our next goal is to enter north and west next fiscal. After this, we will make a foray into neighbouring countries such as Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Dubai.”

Starting with 22-rooms in Yercaud during 2014, TGI now boasts of 650 rooms in its kitty. It is planning to end the current year with 1,000 rooms and more than double it to 2,020 by next fiscal. Over the next five months, TGI would be adding about 350 rooms by entering Hyderabad, Indore, Coimbatore, Tiruchi and Bengaluru to increase the room inventory to 1,000. Currently, it is in an advanced stage of negotiations with property owners in the northeast and west to open at least 500 rooms through 10 properties in 2019-20. The balance 500 rooms will be opened in overseas markets under the TGI brand.

New brand:
Mentioning that the group was also planning to unveil a separate brand (Bread and Breakfast) to cater to travellers, businessmen and corporates, he said that it would be launched next month.

Cheaper hotels:
“Most of our hotels fall under three- or four-star category, the new brand will be for those in a hurry. It will be 20% cheaper than the existing hotels. We are not a boutique hotel management firm as we have rooms starting from 30 going up to 105 units,” he said. ‘As we follow asset-light model, it is easy to acquire new properties. Our investment is deployed on technology, marketing, cloud- based software, corporate loyalty programme, human resources development, training and management and quality audits,” he said.

TGI follows a business strategy of ‘management contract’ with resort or hotel owners. TGI gets to run the property and collects management fee on a pre-fixed percentage of the revenue generated. This year, the company hopes to close the current fiscal with a revenue of ₹100 crore and double it next year.

Coimbatore, Salem on TNPL map this season

https://www.newindianexpress.com/states/tamil-nadu/2020/feb/19/coimbatore-salem-on-tnpl-map-this-season-2105419.html

CHENNAI: Keeping in line with their aim of promoting rural cricket through the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL), the fifth edition of the tournament will see matches conducted in Coimbatore and Salem for the first time. With Dindigul and Tirunelveli, there will be four venues this year.

Chennai will not host any match owing to the construction of a new pavilion at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The work is expected to begin after the IPL. Tuti Patriots and Karaikudi Kaalai have been renamed as Salem Spartans and Tiruppur Tamizhans, respectively. With regard to the Tuti team, it is understood that there is a change in ownership, with two of the three co-owners leaving the franchise this season.

Stadia in Salem, Kovai confirmed

That the TNPL is keen to take game to rural centres is well known. In the last two editions, only six matches were conducted in Chennai, with other games allocated to Tirunelveli and Dindigul. While the ground at Sri Ramakrishna College of Arts and Science in Coimbatore was expected to host matches in the last edition itself, the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association wanted to conduct age-group tournaments there before staging a tournament like TNPL. In December, it was confirmed that Coimbatore will make its debut in TNPL. The Salem Cricket Foundation Stadium, which was inaugurated by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on February 10, was confirmed as the fourth venue on Tuesday. The ground near Vazhapadi in Salem was built at a cost of `3 cr.
