DEGREE/DIPLOMA FOR VEGETARIAN’S IN HOTEL MANAGEMENT COURSES
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. Due to that, 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.
Recently, Ministry of Tourism has given option of “learning Vegetarian only” in all the 71 IHM ( Institute of Hotel Management), which are under NCHMCT ( National Council for Hotel Management and Catering Technology), Tourism Ministry, Central Government , Institutions it is running all over India. With this initiative the passionate students can take admission and pursue career in the field of Hotel Management. But the awareness on large scale is required to be undertaken for the Vegetarian passionate students about availability of option of "learning Vegetarian Only". Recently,U ( University Grants Commission ) and AICTE ( All India Council of Technical Education ) has agreed to give permission of this option if it is applied for.
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.
Also, we request the Hotel Industry to have designated only Vegetarian Restaurant with dedicated only Vegetarian Kitchen in all star hotels where more than one Restaurant is available.
In this regards, I appeal you to use your good offices to support the cause and bring a “Degree/Diploma 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 to give option and create awareness about the availability of Learning "Vegetarian only option"
