An annual feature, Garvotsav: Chandigarh Pride, is growing in magnitude and acceptance every year in city. What started in 2013 with 100 participants only, the Chandigarh LGBTQI Pride Walk, which is the concluding part of the week long celebrations of Garvotsav, has grown to several hundreds, with the LGBTQI community showing off their varied colours at Punjab University.
The Pride Walk also sees participation of the community from outside the Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana region. While the week, which this year started on February 25 in city, witnesses several activities like debates, discussions etc, the Pride Walk remains its most colourful ingredient.
Headquartered in New Delhi, the company opened its first hotel here in 1988 under the dynamic leadership of Founder Chairman Mr. Lalit Suri, who spearheaded the Group’s unprecedented expansion plans.
Rapid expansion and consolidation of its leadership position continues under the enterprising stewardship of Dr. Jyotsna Suri, who took over as Chairperson & Managing Director in 2006.
All hotels within the group operated under the brand The Grand – Hotels, Palaces & Resorts. It was re-branded as ‘The LaLiT’ on November 19, 2008 as a tribute to the company’s Founder Chairman Mr. Lalit Suri.
The company offers twelve luxury Hotels, Places & Resorts and two mid market segment hotels under The LaLiT Traveller brand offering 2261 rooms.
