SC relaxes conditions for Maharashtra dance bars

FILE PIC
The Supreme Court today set aside some provisions of a law imposing restrictions on the licensing and functioning of dance bars in Maharashtra. A bench headed by Justice A K Sikri quashed certain provisions of the 2016 Maharashtra law like the mandatory installation of CCTV and a partition between barrooms and the dance floor.

The court allowed payment of tips to performers in Maharashtra dance bars but made it clear that showering of currency notes cannot be allowed. The apex court also quashed provision mandating that Maharashtra dance bars should be 1 km away from religious places and educational institutions. It also upheld the condition fixing the timing of dance bars in Maharashtra from 6 pm to 11.30 pm.
