In recent years, India's hotel industry has experienced enormous growth. It is intrinsically related to the tourism business, and the hotel sector has benefited from the rise of the Indian tourism industry. Many variables influence the tourism industry, affecting not just the economy but also changing the behaviour of travellers. Hotels, which are an integral part of the tourism, function in a highly competitive and influenced environment. As a result, deliberate planning that allows anticipation of changes or threats, such as paying attention to customers' requirements and expectations, is critical. In today's political, economic, environmental, cultural, religious, and ethical difficulties, our societies' faces of hospitality within and across nations must be bewildered, and our voices hesitant. During the most recent twenty years, the travel industry has contributed 6% of worldwide yield, one in each 15 positions, and 7% capital venture (Kumar, 2018). India has its own way of life and lifestyle, with substantial social variety all through the country. Each state has made its own social character. Tourism promotion, in contrast to other export industries, requires relatively little investment. Its growth potential is limitless. The Indian government recognized the importance of hospitality education and placed IHMs and ITTMs under the administration of tourism ministry. IHMs were established to fill labour shortages in the catering and hotel industries. Similarly, ITTMs addressed the travel and tourism industry's labour shortage. In different parts of hotels, there is a lot of room for research and development. The final section of the study looks at the future prospects of hospitality education in this rapidly increasing industry. The necessity for Innovative Programs in the hospitality and tourist sectors is also explored and the consequences for curriculum development. Involvement of government as a policymaker and cooperation with educational institutions, local and national agencies is also essential. There may be something incredibly innovative, influential, and valuable for both society and industry. As a result, institutions of higher education and research must recognize it as a significant and promising field of study. Changes in the higher education environment have an effect on the teaching learning process, syllabus, course outcomes, and delivery techniques. The purpose of this article is to examine the hospitality education sector’s past, present, and future, as well as to offer suggestions for how these fields can be managed in the future.
