Yet those who are more interested in Samit’s first steps in the hospitality industry would have to go back to 2000 when he took up a position at The Oberoi Grand, Calcutta as soon as he finished a post-graduate diploma in Business Management at the Eastern Institute for Integrated Learning in Management.
