Hotel associations objects govt’s move

On banning performances in restaurant and bars.

Hotel associations like Federation of Hotel and Restaurant association in India (FHRAI) and Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) have objected the Maharashtra government move to ban the performances across all hotels and restaurants by bringing an amendment to the Maharashtra Police Act. 

The state assembly had recently passed the amendment to the Act to plug the loopholes in the existing laws and enact a ban on dance bars and performances across all categories of hotels.  The newly amended bill also proposes hefty penalties in case of violations.

Commenting on the move, SM Shervani, President, FHRAI, said, “It is ridiculous if we have to establish what exactly performance is and what isn’t. If it is found that under the name of performance several illegal activities such as drugs or prostitution are taking place in a hotel, action should be taken on that particular hotel and licence of that hotel should be taken away. Banning performances across all hotels is not a solution to the problems. There has to be change in the mentality of people and that is what will protect women.”

Earlier such ban was implemented in all hotels, bars and restaurants below three-star category but now it has been extended to all three to five starred hotels.  DS Advani, President, HRAWI, said, “Such a law would never work across hotels. You cannot ban people from dancing, listening to music, performing or having fun. A blanket ban on performances at hotels is not a solution to stop illegal activities for sure.”
