The Taste with Vir Sanghvi: This is why the Taj Mansingh is iconic

The Tata group retained the iconic Taj Mansingh Hotel in Lutyens’ Delhi in an auction by the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) after years of litigation at doubled license fees. What makes the hotel iconic, is not any single factor but a combination of many things.
From the moment the Taj opened in Delhi, it was as though a slice of Bombay had been transported to the capital.

Taj Mansingh to finally go under hammer on July 18

The much-delayed auction of Taj Mansingh, which was to be held this month, was cancelled since only Tata Group’s Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) — the existing operator — bid for retaining the property. The bid of the only other participant, ITC, was not accepted on technical grounds.
Taj Mansingh was given to the Tata group in 1978 on a lease for 33 years, which ended in 2011. The company was since given nine temporary extensions. However, the civic body could not auction the property then as it was tied up in a legal battle with IHCL.(HT/File Photo)
