2010 Commonwealth Games
New Delhi: The Delhi government has launched the ‘Bread and Breakfast’ scheme, under which the house owners will be able to rent out their premises to the tourists coming for 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Inaugurating the scheme, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said, “Delhi will be the first state where the scheme is being implemented as legislation.”

She told that the scheme is to meet the anticipated demand of 30,000 tourists and would also assure income to many people.

Chief Minister also declared that the registration and other processes have been also simplified under the scheme adding the security issue would be specifically checked into.

People intending to join the scheme will have to provide parking space, an independent room, laundry facilities, boarding, air conditioning, and an opportunity “to experience Indian customs, traditions and relish authentic Indian cuisine,” she said.

The scheme will be facilitated by DTDC, but it does apply to hotels, motels, guest houses and boarding and lodging houses.

Those owning their own houses can only offer rooms to the guest under the scheme launched under the newly-approved Delhi Incredible India Bread and Breakfast Establishments (registration and regulations) Ordinance 2007.
