Jindal Hotels runs a three star hotel, Hotel Surya Palace, at Baroda. The company was incorporated on May 4, 1984 as a private limited company. Pursuant to the resolution passed at the Extra-ordinary General Meeting of members held on December 5, 1985, it was converted into a public limited company and a fresh certificate of incorporation deleting the word private was obtained on January 24, 1986 from Registrar of Companies, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The main object of the company is to carry on the business of Hotel and Restaurants.
The company entered into the capital market in August, 1986 by an issue of equity shares to the tune of Rs104.98 lakh, since it has been running as a 3 star Category Hotel under the name and style ‘Hotel Surya Palace’, at Baroda. During the initial years of commercial operations, the company faced numerous problems viz. frequent communal riots in the City of Baroda, consecutive bad monsoon in the year 1987 & 1988, postponement of various public sector projects, resultant industrial depression, economic recession etc. These factors altogether resulted in lower sales and consequent losses for the Company. Due to effective management, company's losses remained under control in these difficult times; from the year 1991, the company turned the corner and started earning profits. The company's successful operations are reflected in the increase in its turnover from Rs. 176 lakh in the year 1990-91 to Rs. 320 lakh in the year 1993-94 and a rise in net worth from Rs.4.91 lakh to Rs.86.16 lakh. Considering the emerging market potential and its sound footing in the market as a leading hotel in Baroda company proposes to expand and upgrade the existing Hotel by raising the funds through Right Issue of Equity Shares. In 2004, Jindal Hotels informed that the equity shares of the company had been delisted from Ahmedabad Stock Exchange with effect from March 31, 2004.
