The Ministry of Urban Development has launched the online booking facility in the Ministry of Urban Development Holiday Homes for the Central Government employees. This was formally launched by Shri R.C. Mishra, Additional Secretary, of the Ministry of Urban Development, here today.
Ministry of Urban Development has Holiday Homes at 10 locations and Touring Officers Hostels at 30 odd locations all over India. The conventional method of booking of accommodation in these Guest Houses was time consuming and the facility was not accessible to a large section of the Central Government employees, posted all over the country. The new user-friendly system shall enable the Central Government employees
- To apply online for booking of rooms in these Holiday Homes and Touring Officers Hostels
- To know the status of their applications online; and
- To obtain Confirmation Slips online.
With the installation of online booking facility, the Serving and retired Central Government employees will now be able to avail of this facility at their doorstep through the internet portal of the Directorate of Estates (www.estates.nic.in).
Initially, the internet booking facility has been launched for Holiday Home at Mussurie. In due course, this would be extended to other Holiday Homes and Touring OfficersÂ¡Â¦ Hostels under Ministry of Urban Development. The Ministry of Urban Development is negotiating with the bank for making payment through Debit/Credit cards. Till that time the existing mode of payment through Demand draft will be adhered for advance reservation of rooms. The software for this purpose has been developed by the National Informatics Centre.
Ministry of Urban Development has many other projects in pipeline for establishing new Holiday Homes at Hyderabad, Port Blair, Chandigarh, Udaipur, Jaipur, Mount Abu, etc. for the welfare of the Central Government employees. With the streamlining of the mode of booking, the Ministry anticipates that a large number of Government employees would be benefited.
