A wonderful opportunity for residential property owners to become a part of Tourism and Hospitality Business

Madhya Pradesh Tourism’s Home Stay Scheme is a golden opportunity for all those Apartment/Bungalow/Cottage owners who can provide accommodation and food facility to domestic and international tourists. This scheme is based on India’s core philosophy and tradition, VasudhaivaKutumbkam. This unique and profitable scheme will enable property owners to introduce tourists to the culture, cuisine, customs and lifestyle of Madhya Pradesh. At the same time, the scheme will also ensure a recurring source of income for property owners. It’s time to welcome guests from the world to the heart of India, and your home!   



To supplement the available tourist accommodation in cities and at places of tourist interest in Madhya Pradesh, MP Tourism has launched Home Stay under Bed & Breakfast (B&B) Scheme, effective from 1st April 2010. The scheme has been introduced in line with the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, for providing comfortable Home Stay facilities to the tourists, and giving an opportunity to foreign tourists to experience the famed Indian hospitality, cuisine, customs and traditions by staying with Indian families.
The Government of Madhya Pradesh has authorized MP State Tourism Development Corporation Ltd. to implement the scheme in earnest. In turn, MPSTDC has already issued a booklet containing all the guidelines for Home Stay owners to get their establishments registered and become operational. The salient highlights of the scheme are as follows:-
