Now restaurants to operate 24X7 after Central govt approval

The labour ministry has been working on a model central law that would allow brick-and-mortar stores as well as the entertainment industry to operate 24×7.

The Central government is set to kick-start consultations on a proposed law that will enable restaurants, malls, theatres and local markets to remain open round-the-clock, levelling the playing field between brick-and-mortar retailers and online sellers.

The labour ministry will hold the first round of tripartite consultations with trade unions, employers and state representatives on Tuesday i.e. 5th Jan’15 to elicit the views of all stakeholders on the draft Shop and Establishment Act that it has prepared. This will be a model central Act, which will be advisory in nature, not binding on states.

The labour ministry has been working on a model central law that would allow brick-and-mortar stores as well as the entertainment industry to operate 24×7.

Under the existing state laws, shops are required to close on a specified day. There is no provision for shops to remain open 24×7 either, so malls and restaurants close at midnight and local markets even earlier generally.
