DO U KNOW?
TAJ MAHAL PALACE HOTEL has completed 100
years in the year 2003, and is the oldest 5 star
hotel in our country.
Taj’s name was kept TAJ as MR. Jamsetji
Nusserwanji Tata wanted to make his customers
feel as if they are staying in a royal palace; this is
probably the reason why the interiors of TAJ MAHAL
PALACE are like
the one found inside
For more than 100 years, we have acquainted guests with
the living heritage of India - and a legendary experience in
It began on December 16, 1903, when J amsetji Nusserwanji
Tata opened Taj’s first hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower,
Mumbai. This grand hotel epitomized a philosophy that still
holds true today: provide impeccable service and
unparalleled facilities so every stay is a memorable one.
A part of the Tata Group of companies www.tata.com, India's

Malaysia, Seychelles, U K , USA , B hutan, Sri L anka, A frica, and

business facilities, interiors, and world-class, personalized
In India, Taj is recognized as the premier hospitality provider,
spanning the length and breadth of the country, and gracing
important industrial towns and cities, beautiful beaches,
historical and pilgrim centers, and wildlife destinations.
HI STORY OF TAJ :-
Billed by the Times, London as the finest hotel in the East,
the Taj’s first hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Mumbai
was perhaps the only place in the world where a British
Viceroy could rub shoulders with an Indian Maharajah,
where the Congress could debate with right wing leaders,
and where sailors on shore leave could flirt with the
Pompadour Follies. Built at the cost of a quarter of a million
pounds, the hotel introduced a series of firsts that set new
benchmarks in Indian hospitality. Over the years, the Taj
brought into Bombay, “Professors of Dance’ Mademoiselle
Singy to raise temperatures and a few eyebrows with the
Tango, the first air-conditioned ballroom to cool things
down, the first cold storage, the first licensed bar, and
The changing decades ushered in new tastes and newer
guests including Mick Jagger, Steven Spielberg, and David
Rockefeller, to name a few. From Nobel laureates to rock
stars, fashion divas, to oil-rich sheiks, Taj represented a
global village long before the term was to become a cliché.
Even today, a hundred years on, guests will find Taj taking
luxury to greater heights in all its hotels around the world
including business capitals, fairy-tale palaces, on secluded
islands, in private yachts, aboard executive jets, and amidst
spas and resorts. Still, as the discerning traveller will note,
a little ahead of its time.
How does TAJ provide services to its
According to TAJ, CUSTOMER IS GOD. So they see to it that
they serve their customers in the best possible manner. The
following steps are taken by TAJ to serve their customers:-
TAJ has a system known as the G.S.T.S i.e. the
GUEST SERVICE TRAFFIC SYSTEM. In this system all
the complaints of the customers are filled using
computer software. A separate committee is
appointed which goes through the systems to
check out all the complaints that are filled in by
the customers. There is a meeting at the end of
the month where these complaints are discussed
by this committee, so that in future these
complaints don’t happen again.
The people in TAJ don’t like to keep their
customers waiting, therefore whenever one calls
TAJ for some work; their call is picked up within 2
rings by the person sitting at the telephone
department. Also the room service like the
cleaning of bed etc, is also done in a period of 3-4
TAJ also provides free pickup and drop services to
all its customers.
Suppose if a customer’s birthday comes during
his/her stay in TAJ, then he is given a wine bottle
and few chocolates by TAJ.
EMPLOYEES OF TAJ :-
These needs are the basic needs of food, clothing,
shelter etc, which have to be fulfilled b y an individual.
An individual will be able to fulfill these needs only if he
has adequate money with him. Taj helps to satisfy these
needs in the following ways:-
Taj provides employment to more than 1,500 people
(including people employed on permanent and
temporary basis) and gives them a good pay
depending upon their post.
Most of the employees working in TAJ come from
different parts of the country and find it difficult and
expensive to get accommodation, TAJ provides them
with housing facilities by just deducting a small
amount from their salary. The houses provided are
decently sized and well maintained and also differ
from post to post.
Taj also provides uniform (blazers) to all its
employees. They are given a new set of uniform
every six months.
Since the employees have a shift of 8 hours a day,
Taj also provides them with meals depending upon
which shifts they work on. The quality of the food is
equivalent to the food provided to the guests.
In case of job security an employee’s job is not secured
for the first year. However if the management is satisfied
with his job, an employee’s job might be secured even
before he completes 12 months.
In case of a trainee there is no job security provided. But
if the management is satisfied with his job they might
offer him a job in their hotel.
In case of physical security they provide them with
benefits like medical insurance, life insurance at the
discretion of the employee. This is because to avail these
facilities a minimum pay is deducted from their salary .
The employees are allowed to have their meals in groups,
for example if there are ten people working on a shift
there may be groups of 4 who lunch at one given time.
This helps them to form informal groups. However these
informal groups are made amongst the employees of the
In Taj there is also an annual social gathering where all
the employees from the top to the bottom are invited.
Also each and every employee is given a gift when they
leave, and the gift differs from post to post.
In Taj , promotion is strictly given on the basis of merit.
Here the things like experience and influence doesn’t
come into account. If one is capable then he will be
Employees are considered important in Taj, and are
recognized for their job. In case , if an employee’s
performance is exceptionally good in the past year he is
awarded a certificate along with some cash incentives. Also
if an employee has given long years of service he is given a
momentum from Taj.
In the hotel industry, job rotation is followed on a large
scale. This is done so that an employee can exel in
each and every department. An employee’s job is not
rotated unless he has proven himself in a particular
department. Therefore when an employee is rotated from
one department to another there is an ego boost as he feels
that the management has appreciated his work and feel that
he is capable of doing something more.
JOB ENRICHMENT& ENLARGEMENT
In the hotel industry, job enrichment and enlargement is
not followed as they feel that if an employee is capable
of handling additional responsibilities then he is directly
