After complaints from F1 fans who bought hotels with their Formula One Tickets, hotels in India could lose their star rating if they don't put in place strict security measures mandated by the government, the Times of India reports.

Talk of the increased hotel-security requirements comes days after India marked the second anniversary of the deadly Nov. 26, 2008, terror attacks in Mumbai.

Terrorists killed nearly 200 people in places such as the Oberoi and Taj Mahal Palace hotels. With concerns high for the anniversary, in fact, India had placed luxury hotels on high alert.

Specifically, India's tourism ministry is requiring hotels with three or more stars to install specific equipment for securing their premises, the story says. Srivats Sanjay, an executive with India Tourism, told the paper:

"Though the rule technically came into effect in the wake of the 26/11 attack, we decided to give some time to the hotels to make the security arrangements. In practice, the rule is applicable from September 2010...Safety of guests should figure on the priority list of hotels that wish to retain their star classification as security is of prime importance."

The revamp of India's star rating system marks the second time this year that the ratings formula has come under question.

Last summer, China revamped its hotel star ratings system after the five-star Hilton in Chongqing was discovered to have a brothel operating in its independently run karaoke bar. The agency that awards hotels their stars yanked the hotel's fifth star. Today, the agency visits hotel more often and incorporates anonymous customer opinions before determining a property's star status.
