September 5, Malekhu: Hotels and eateries along Nagdhunga-Naubise road section have been charged of serving the customers with substandard food at exorbitant cost.
Some travelers who visit such eateries have even claimed that rude treatment on the part of hoteliers and workers was quite common.
As per the government rule, the hoteliers are supposed to post the price tag of the products/service they offer. However, this is not duly implemented and also there is no improvement on the quality of food they sell.
Most of the travelers complain that they have no choice for hotels but of drivers- forcing the customers to pay high price for the low-quality food and that could also be stale sometime.
Against this backdrop and heavy criticisms on the service of the hoteliers along the highway in Dhading district, the District Administration Office and District Small and Cottage Industry Office have intensified the monitoring of the hotels. Chief of District Small and Cottage Industry Office Meghnath Gautam said the hotels along the highway were found charging unusual price but for the poor quality services.
Chief District Officer of Dhading Krishna Prasad Lamsal said the owners selling their goods and services without price tag have been ordered to do so within a week and were warned against the wrongdoings.
