The picture will be clear in 4 months

An industry executive, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that in the next three to four months, we should have a clear picture of the daily traffic in the temple and the demand for manpower to serve the devotees. It is estimated that the Tirupati Balaji Temple, one of the richest temples in the world and crowded throughout the year, sees an average of 50,000 devotees daily and reaches 100,000 on holidays or festivals. According to various estimates, 300,000 to 700,000 people may visit Ayodhya in the first week after the opening of the Ram temple.

Additional pan power required

Experts say that if 2-3 lakh people visit the Ayodhya temple every day in the coming years, more manpower will be required to provide accommodation, logistics and food to these devotees. Balasubramanian said the typical labor demand ratio in the hospitality industry is 1-2 employees per 100 customers, which means more jobs can be created throughout the year. However, most of these jobs are temporary in nature and their number may increase or decrease depending on the demand and the number of devotees visiting the temple.

After two years, the demand for labor will increase

Nandivardhan Jain, chief executive officer of Noesis Capital Advisors, said it usually takes three to four years for a hotel to go from construction to operation. However, in the case of Ayodhya, various clearances can be fast-tracked and hence the demand for manpower is expected to increase over the next 18-24 months. Hotel companies are seeing what the supply and demand situation is like. Ayodhya currently has very little supply from two big brand hotels – Radisson’s Park Inn and Signet.

Hotel companies are on standby

Patu Keswani, Chairman and MD, Lemon Tree Hotels, said that while we are sure there is demand in Ayodhya, we are not sure about the supply. According to him, many hotel companies are on standby. Rajiv Kale, President, Thomas Cook (India) and Country Head, Holidays, MICE, Visa, said the excitement over the inauguration of Ram Temple has given a boost to temple tourism in the consumer segment. According to him, with the upcoming inauguration, temple tourism has grown rapidly and we have seen searches increase by more than 1,000 percent compared to last year.
