The Karnataka tourism department has approved 207 homestays in Coorg.
Altogether, 4600 applications have been submitted online for registration of homestays, of which only 207 homestays have been approved. The rest of the applications are being scrutinized.
As per government norms, only those families which possess houses of their own should foray into the homestay business. It is learnt that many of the applicants fail to satisfy this rule.
The Kodagu district administration has called upon the tourists to check into only such homestays approved by the government.
