    1. Hi, Raj You have to wait for the email of Taj Hotels. They are responsible for conducting interviews. As per the detail provided by The Taj Group, they will start taking interviews from June. So, be ready for the interview and prepare well. All the Best!

  2. Can foreign nationals who are residents of india and have completed their class 10th and class12th from india itself , apply for this course?

    1. Dear Aisha
      Thank You for your Inquiry.

      Certainly who are resident of India they can apply for this course.
      May I know that the person is permanent resident of India or He/she is on visa.

    1. Hi Ritika, Have you sent your application to them? My apologies for the inconvenience but I came to know that today is the last date for application. If you haven’t sent your application yet, then send them soon today itself.

    1. See this is a totally new program so it is quite tough to know what they will ask. First of all, don’t go the interview venue in casuals get formal for yourself. Try to know yourself better, because they would like to know who you are and why you’re there and only you know this answer. Be yourself and if your English is good, then I think you will not face more difficulties.

      1. I guess i had applied before 16 because i got a reply to my aplication that i need to give them more information about myself bt after giving the information i ddnt get any reply

  10. Neelashish Chatterjee

    Please help me out, The Golden Threshold Program which is offered by Taj Hotels is basically on the job training ,so later on when I will join another hotel after the completion of program, so will this 3 years in Taj be considerd as a professional work experience over there?

    1. Dear Neelashish, Thank you for reaching out! Yes this would be considered as your professional experience but does’t mean the company would hire you as a Manager, since you will still be a recent grad. Hope it helps. Cheers!

      1. Neelashish Chatterjee

  17. Anmol Engandula

    Applicants, please be warned. This is a scam Taj Hotels runs to get cheap labour for their hotels, especially the Bangalore based Taj West End program. The hotel treats the students like bonded labour and the subjects them to absolutely abusive treatment. The L&D heads, especially at Taj West End-Bangalore, Naina Khanna, is least bothered about the plight of the students and enforces her will in the most autocratic & inhumna way possible. There also no responsibility for this taken by either TISS or Taj Hotels. So, please enroll at your own risk.

    1. Hi Anmol, my bad for responding late. I have published your comment because of freedom of voice while I know there could be other things around, but still, if it’s right then people need to take care of and those who treat people like shit, they should be treated the same way.
