India.- Anil Malani, Deltin Group’s CEO has spoken about the company’s plans for next year and how the Covid-19 pandemic affected its businesses in Goa.
In an interview with Travel Trends Today, Malani said casinos in Goa remain a major draw, but that the company is also awaiting a licence in Daman, in the union territory of Daman and Diu, north of Mumbai. Deltin Group currently has two offshore casinos and one 5-star hotel with a land-based casino in Goa and one land-based casino each in Sikkim and Nepal.
Malani said: “Casinos are a major tourist attraction in Goa and they not only help revive the long-struggling travel & tourism industry but also people employed in it, who were badly hit by two waves of the Covid-19 pandemic. All our properties are abiding by the government safety guidelines and restrictions.”
