India's biggest hotel chain, Taj Hotels, has announced plans to help female staff by paying for fertility treatment.
Dr PV Murthy, global head of human resources at the hotel chain's parent firm, the Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), said: "We have been consistent in championing the cause for women.
"The extension of medical benefits and the women referral programme is in line with our commitment to encourage women for diverse roles in the company."
IHCL runs 144 hotels in 11 countries. Its first hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, opened in 1903.
