FHRAI applauds ONDC initiative, requests govt for similar platform for hospitality industry

The Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI) has applauded the government and Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) on the successful launch of the pilot phase of Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) in five cities of India.


Terming the initiative as a revolutionary step in the larger interest of the retail ecosystem in the country, FHRAI anticipates ONDC to change the dynamics of the online retail market in the country.


In a representation made to Piyush Goyal, Minister of Commerce, and Nandan Nilekani, Advisory Council Member of ONDC, FHRAI has requested for a similar platform for the hospitality industry to ensure a level playing field and to break the monopoly of Online Travel Aggregators (OTAs) and Food Service Aggregators (FSAs).


“Like the retail players, the hospitality industry too is presently aggrieved by a few OTAs and FSAs. Introducing a platform like ONDC for the hospitality industry will be a big game changer. It will ensure a mechanism to protect the interests of hotels and restaurants across the country against the predatory pricing and anti-competitive tactics of OTAs and FSAs. Needless to say, it will immensely benefit millions of our customers with better deals and better customer experience,” Gurbaxish Singh Kohli, Vice President, FHRAI, said.
