Why Public Avoides these Guest Houses?
The Public should use guest houses/rooms too as these are economical. But the main reason that the public makes to avoid booking such guest houses is the procedure. Another main reason is the unawareness of booking for the public. If the Government makes the procedure simple and online booking starts, then the Government can earn a lot from these guest houses/ rooms. Punjab Government has already issued a Notification of the conversion of Govt Guest Houses into tourist resorts. Such type of steps will really help the Government to increase revenue.
