ATITHI DEVO BHAVAH
Hallmark of Indian Heritage of Hospitality
connotes that a GUEST on our precincts is an august arrival venerable like God. From times immemorial, it has been the cult and concern of the people of this Holy land of India. And a SOVEREIGN CONCERN of the Republic of India as well. HOSPITABILITY is our habit and identity.
(Mehamaan jo hamaara hota hai woh jaan se pyaara hota hai)
A guest is more endearing and important than even life for us
Another area of STATE CONCERN is Tourism for it is associated with the sustainable development and exploitation for social utility of its national heritage, monuments, places of historic importance, wonders of wildlife and wilderness and natural tracts and spots of scenic grandeur and picturesque pulchritude while at the same time ensuring its conservation.
From out of such dual concern, shared by the twin participation and support in terms of fund and facilitation of the Governments of Indian Union and that of the state of Andhra Pradesh sprang to life an offspring with the appellation ' National Institute of Tourism and HospitalIty Management ' later renamed "DR YSR NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT". Efforts for formation of this Institute under A P Societies Registration Act fructified at the turn of this millenium recognising the need for preparing in adequate numbers of trained and well groomed professionals and personnel in the domain of tourism, hotel and hospitality sectors likely to witness exponential demand vis -a- vis tardy momentum in supply. From the day when it was formally inaugurated on 16 March 2005 by the Congress President Mrs Sonia Gandhi our prodigious Institute is gaining from strength to strength and reaching new milestones of progress in its commitment to play the pioneering role in the field of providing education, training, consultancy, extension, research and development services to the specified sectors under the umbrella of Tourism and Hospitality Industry. With a global outlook, perception and preparedness powered by concern and commitment.
