Mumbai: Tata Group company is likely to open a part of its heritage wing of Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in November-December, a top company official said.

The prestigious Taj Palace Hotel was damaged during the Mumbai terror attacks last year.

"We expect to open a fair amount of the heritage wing of the Taj Mahal Hotel in November-December barring the sixth floor, which will open by March 2010," Indian Hotels' Managing Director, Raymond Bickson, told reporters here.

"We expect to re-open three of our restaurants- Golden Dragon, Wasabi and the Harbour Bar shortly," Bickson said.

The rooms and the remaining food and beverage outlets in the hotel, including the ball room, will be opened in phases, he said.

The company's total income was also affected because of the closure of 287 rooms in the Palace wing of the hotel which is undergoing renovation.

As on date, the company has received Rs 130-crore from the insurance company as an on account payment towards business interruption and property damage claim.
