Hotelier Keshav Suri, executive director of The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group, recently filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking quashing of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code and the decriminsalisation of homosexuality.
On April 23, a bench headed by chief justice Dipak Misra issued a notice to the Centre on the plea – filed in court by senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi – and then ordered that it be bunched with other similar petitions already referred to a Constitution bench.
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.
