Kathmandu, March 16
Homestay operators across Nepal have demanded that the government set a standard and an operating procedure for their business.
Concluding its third national workshop seminar recently, the Homestay Association of Nepal said such a standard and operating procedure were essential to control and prevent various malpractices happening in the name of homestay business.
The association said it would also develop its own standard incorporating various aspects such as branding, classification, quality, and recognition. Likewise, a code of conduct would be made for the visitors also.
The association demanded that the government award homestay operators who contributed something good to the state and take action against wrongdoers after monitoring and evaluation.
On its part, the association expressed its commitment that homestays would comply with the WHO standard set for the prevention of Covid-19.
