1. TCB Certified Hotels

a) Phase II validation will begin from September 9, 2022 for 3 star and above hotels that missed the deadline or were not recommended under Phase I.

b) The link of the google forms for submission of application is available on the TCB website ( and will be open until 11.59 PM, September 15, 2022

c) Only online applications received within the deadline will be considered for validation. No walk-in applications will be entertained.

d) TCB will contact hotels for on-site assessment to validate their readiness, where necessary.

2. Homestays

a) TCB will contact homestays from September 10 to 11, 2022 to assess their readiness for operation and will subsequently conduct on-site assessments to validate their readiness under Phase II. TCB would like to inform that the validation will not be a one-time exercise. Tourist accommodations may continue to upgrade their services and apply for validation as and when ready.
