Later, Mr. Pongalur N. Palanisamy told reporters that there were 1,500 air conditioned rooms in the hotels in Coimbatore City and another 500 in peripheral towns such as Mettupalayam, Pollachi and Tirupur.

It had also been decided to make use of the rooms being constructed by two upcoming hotels in the city. In addition, kalyana mandapams numbering around 150 and 15 belonging to the Corporation would be kept ready. The Minister appealed to the people not to fix any functions in kalyana mandapams on the Tamil conference dates to avoid inconvenience.

Meeting with hoteliers

On Friday, Mr. Umanath along with Mr. Anshul Mishra, Tamil Conference Special Officer S. Prabhakaran and DCP P. Nagarajan held a meeting with the hoteliers in the district.

The Collector and the Corporation Commissioner said that the city had 5,780 rooms and approximately 2,000 to 2,500 rooms might be required for the purpose of the conference from June 22 to 28, 2010.

A list of hotels and the numbers of rooms were ready with the district administration.

The Collector urged the hoteliers to provide rooms, quality food and excellent hospitality to the visiting delegates.

On the conference dates, the hoteliers should not provide rooms to any other persons. Only the Accommodation Committee had the right to allocate rooms.

List of guests

The hoteliers would be provided with a list of guests staying with them.

To avoid linguistic related problems with foreign delegates, there would be enough interpreters.

All hotels would be provided with police protection. For the hoteliers to co-ordinate, District Revenue Officer (Excise), Shanmugasundaram would be the nodal officer and he could be contacted at 95008-10175.

Officials and the police personnel would be accommodated in the kalyana mandapams and hostels of various educational institutions.
