The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI)

FSSAI has been created for laying down science-based standards for articles of food and to regulate their manufacture, storage, distribution, sale, and import to ensure the availability of safe and wholesome food for human consumption. In addition to FSSAI norms that are mandated for hotels and restaurants, our Quality Control Team – a dedicated department trained as per International standards, independently monitors all suppliers on a regular basis to ensure food safety standards are being adhered to.

  • Be culturally aware of the social norms at each place.
  • Adapt your clothing, interactions, and habits to blend in with the women around you; you can learn a lot by observing them.
  • As in the west, avoid walking alone after dark or in isolated areas.
  • If you feel that someone is following you, immediately rush to a crowded place & if need be don’t be embarrassed to shout & gain attention.
  • Avoid taking private/roadside cabs and buses. Always use cabs which can be tracked like Uber & Ola and government-run transport buses to stay out of trouble.
  • Always have your phone handy and activate your speed dials which can be used to dial numbers in Emergency.
  • Avoid being over-friendly with strangers, men specifically.
  • It doesn’t hurt to learn a few words of the local language.
  • If you are venturing out alone, always keep a close one informed of your whereabouts at all times.
  • Be aware of the law of the land.
  • For guests who are looking to enjoy the nightlife, we suggest doing so in the cities and only at the clubs in 5* hotels to be safe.
