Around the globe and also in India there are various religions, races, communities, castes and human groups which prefer eating vegetarian food only. Some Religions and communities are Vegetarian only. In India, majority of people are Pure Vegetarians, some are Non-Vegetarians while others are occasional non-vegetarians.

Learning to prepare non-vegetarian food was compulsory in Hotel Management Degree Course till recently. In this reference, there was no option available to the students other than to practically prepare and present the non-vegetarian food. Students coming from Vegetarian Families who were inclined towards this esteemed course were deprived admission by their parents. As separate degree or option is now created, the students who were joining the present mixed (Veg and Non-veg) courses shall be indirectly prevented from eating or becoming non-vegetarian as against the wishes of their own, families and religion.

Recently, Ministry of Tourism has given option of “learning Vegetarian only” in 6 Institutions it is running at Gandhinagar, Bhopal, Jaipur, Chennai, Hajipur and Shillong ( In fact specific seats are reserved for Vegetarian Students) has announced that similar option will be given in rest of institutes it is running all over India. but still not available in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata and other cities. One estimate there are more than 2,000 colleges in India and you don't have option in these Institutes

It is strongly suggested that there should be an option of “learning Vegetarian only” in present degree course for Vegetarians in Hotel Management Studies in all the Institutions whether run by Government or Deemed Universities, by State Governments or by private Hotel Management Education Institutions. Such change is highly recommended as it is the need of society. Such a degree at all institutions will not only be a boost for the students but it will also benefit the Hotel and Tourism Industry, by getting qualified intelligent Vegetarian Chefs and staff in India and all over world.

In this Course, students have to study in more than 40 different subjects like Accommodation, Laws, Travel & Tourism, HR Management, Accounting, etc. out of which Culinary Skills (Cooking) is one of the specialized areas. So, the Vegetarian students were not only losing the Opportunity to learn this skill but they even cannot learn other subjects and were deprived of having their career in those areas.

Once this option is introduced at all places, then various people around the world can enjoy different and new delicacies of Vegetarian dishes. Many Renowned chains of Hotel, airline companies and passenger cruises operating internationally serve pure vegetarian food during stay and travel, can provide it with authenticity.

Also , the Government initiatives like Skill Development, Swatch Bharat, Healthy India, etc will get big booster by bringing this option in Hotel / Hospitality Management Institutions

In this regards, I appeal you to use your good offices to support the cause and bring a “Degree for Vegetarians in Hotel Management Course” in reality by pursuing the need to Heads of Governments, Education, Tourism Ministers, AICTE, NCHMCT, Universities and other concerned authorities at all levels.
