Too Long; Didn't Read
Oyo Rooms was rife with non-compliant, fraudulent and predatory business practices. Oyo often listed thousands of rooms from unlicensed hotels and guesthouses. The company also withheld payments from hotel owners into renegotiating contracts that it deemed unprofitable. Oyo is now facing a series of regulatory investigations and legal run-ins, as evidenced by their prima facie case with the Competition Commission of India. Hoteliers are dropping off from the platform in the hundred. Hotel and restaurant associations in Gujarat, Mumbai, and other major India cities are also boycotting their booking portal.
