'Dulhan' - A well furnished homeWith an intention to make AP as the most favourite tourist destination in India, the government of Andhra Pradesh has introduced the 'Paying guest accommodation scheme' in the capital city. For that, the tourism department has selected 12 houses to make this concept successful.

The houses mostly located in the surrounding areas of Banjara Hills and Secunderabad are providing good accommodation facilities along with the home made food and warm service. Although the scheme was launched six months back, the guests are just beginning to trickle into these rooms. Says one paying guest provider Mrs Radhika "this is a new concept and takes some time to catch up with the tourists." Interior decorator by profession, Mrs Radhika's residence located in posh Banjara Hills area has three beautifully festooned rooms where 12 people can comfortably stay. Aptly named as 'Dulhan', the house provides great experience for the guests. Radhika put her rich experience of interior designing into practice and transformed this huge building into a little paradise. The beautiful green lawn, spacious rooms and well arranged furniture make this place as one of the hot spots for the tourists to stay.

Mrs K Radhika's homeThe houses, which are selected on the basis of location and the facilities available also enables tourists flocking to the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad to get to know more about the culture and heritage of Andhra Pradesh. A paying guest provider Mrs K. Pradeepak feels that this concept provides them an opportunity to expose the culture and tehzeeb of Andhra Pradesh to the tourists who come to stay with them. Says Pradeepak, "Andhra food and Hyderabadi biryani form an important part of our culture and I would like the guests to taste these delectable dishes prepared in a traditional way."

Mrs. & Mr Zainab and Thaver Aly Husayn's homeSome paying guest providers are dishing out food of the guest's choice where as some others are strictly adhering to the Andhra dishes. Says Radhika "the guests should try to taste the local food instead of eating their regular food". Apart from this, the service rendered by these paying guest providers is excellent when compared to many hotels in the city. "There are three helpers in my home and they are always in service of the guests," says Radhika. "We treat the guests very well. We take care of their needs personally and we see that they return home with full satisfaction", says Mrs Rai, a retired government employee, having her residence in Banjara Hills.

When comes to rules and regulations, many paying guest providers have framed it on their own. The guests should adhere to these rules very strictly. In some homes, liquor and smoking is absolutely not allowed inside the rooms. If they want to smoke they should do it either in the balconies or in the lawns. The size of the guests and their attitude and profession also plays an important role in getting the accommodation in these homes.

Lt Col. Khusru Yar Khan's residence in Red HillsThe paying guest providers are ecstatic about this concept as it is expected to benefit both the paying guest providers as well as the tourists. Apart from giving an opportunity to the locals to earn extra income, it would also enable them to show their culture to the guests.
