My first effort as the Head of NRAI Chandigarh Chapter would be to personally interact and bring as many (organized) restaurant owners under the banner of NRAI. Secondly, to put forth Restaurant Industry’s concerns with respective Government departments and try seek breathers urgently required by the industry."
