Delhi saw a year-on-year decline of 44.3 per cent in revenue per available room (RevPAR) in the hotel sector between January and July, property consultant JLL India said on Friday. However, this decline is the most modest decline when compared to all other major cities in India, it added.

"During the lockdown months between April and June, many hotels in Delhi served as quarantine and medical staff housing facilities," JLL India Hotels and Hospitality Group said in a statement. The city is among the first key markets to bring the COVID-19 situation under control with a high recovery rate, JLL India said.
