One of the landmarks of the Mumbai, Taj Mahal Hotel, owned by a Tata Group firm, is providing free stay to the medical personnel who are treating coronavirus patients.
During these trying times, we at the Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), the hospitality business of Tata Sons are keenly aware of our responsibility towards our community. As a reflection of our commitment, beginning today, we are offering rooms for the medical fraternity to stay while they combat the spread of the virus.
These rooms will be available across 5 of our hotels in Mumbai namely Taj Mahal Palace, Taj Lands End, Taj Santacruz, The President and Ginger MIDC Andheri. We deeply value the contribution from the medical community and will continue to work with them as well as the local authorities as we navigate through this crisis,” an IHCL spokesperson said. The generous move comes after reports of medical professionals and other frontline workers facing social stigma in many cities surfaced. As the photos went viral, people lauded the group and Ratan Tata for going above and beyond to help those fighting against the infectious disease that has claimed over 60 lives in India.
Tata Sons has already announced Rs 1500 crore support towards COVID-19 crisis and related activities.
