Online C Form Submission

Indian FRRO and CID dept has come up with new method of filing C form. i.e form submitting information about foreigners visiting India and staying in hotel. With this new instructions every hotel and guest house has to submit online guest details through website. Within one hour of arrival in hotel along with extensive details like how many days they have planned to stay in India, reference and contact number in India, purpose of visit and photo identification etc. Etc. This had advanced challenges to front office staff as we had closely worked in front office area we know how guests are reluctant to disclose their information. They resists in term of personal security reasons. The instruction details requested by FRRO is extensive we appreciate their vision how helpful this information on their decision making authorities. But with Hotel and Guest house perspective you are literally carrying out investigation on foreigners visit and guest feel that whether he had committed offence visiting India.


Extra work and work duplication for Front Desk

Again there is extra work is loaded to front office staff that he has to scan crop save and upload each and every guest photograph to FRRO website.


Confusing Submit Buttons at Website will lead to mistakes

Also on website the buttons save and save and exit. These buttons have odd terminology which a layman will not understand and he will commit mistake which FRRO should consider and rectify or amend it. Technically it should be save, save and submit, open or something FRRO should think feasible aspect. And for Hotel and Guest house owner and staff this is duplication of work which we think FRRO and CID department will take into consideration.


How to synchronise   - a challenge 

Now challenge has arises to hotel or guest houses where nobody permits live internet access to front office staff due to various regular, security, data leakage and virus factors. And now with these new rule every hotel or guest house owner has to give internet access to staff. The main drawback with this is effeciency drop in staff. Retaining staff will be difficult because he is having acccess to job portals etc.


Pilot Project – Testing is in progress

At Hotel Sea Princess juhu Mumbai we are working up with  their online submission issues and had developed  small  solution which is working effectively. As of now we had reduced time  for each for each guest cform  submission from 20 minutes to 10 minutes and we had projected to reduce further to maximum of 5 minutes including scanning copying and uploading without direct internet access to front office desk.

For more details about our this pilot project you call EDP / IT Department at Hotel Sea Princess  or mail us. We will be happy to provide you results.
