TODAY OUR nation is facing the single biggest challenge for its survival. The nation-wide lockdown in the wake of COVID-19 comes with its own difficulties for everyone. It has adversely impacted the daily wage earners, those below the poverty line and the most vulnerable who are not only fighting the epidemic but also hunger.
The Lalit has taken the lead to support the Delhi Government’s initiative of feeding the needy by donating 1000 kg of wheat flour (Atta) and 300 kgs of refined wheat flour (Maida), over 700 kgs of vegetables from their own gardens in the last couple of days to the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB).
Similarly, the remaining 11 hotels of the group are providing more than 1000 kg of atta, 500 kg of maida, 200 litres of oil, food supplies, fruits and vegetables to the relevant local authorities who are leading the food distribution.
“These are extraordinary times. COVID-19 is one of the toughest crisis ever faced by humanity. Everyone must do their bit to fight this pandemic. The need of the hour is to stand together and take care of those most affected. Together we can and we will overcome this,” said Dr Jyotsna Suri, Chairperson & Managing Director, The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group.
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.
