New Delhi , Feb. 24

THE newly appointed Chairman and Managing Director of India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), Mr Rajeev Talwar, on Wednesday said that the corporation would look at offering a voluntary retirement scheme to cut down on excessive work force. "It will be an on-going exercise. We need to raise revenues," he said, addressing a press conference here.

Emphasising that a VRS should be there, he stated that the corporation will look at using its own funds for this. The organisation has already cut manpower but there was scope for further rationalisation of the workforce, the CMD said. At present, almost 80 per cent of ITDC staff is based in Delhi.

Commenting on the recent shortage of some premium brands of whisky at ITDC duty-free shops, Mr Talwar said that tenders would be floated soon to overcome the situation.

"The last order was placed in May. It was exceptionally large. There were 17 containers each having between 950-1,000 cases of 12 bottles. However, they were got without a purchase order being issued," Mr Talwar said. He, however, said to overcome shortage stock was being moved from places that had excess to those that had less.
