Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray held an assembly on January 16. Shopping centers, multiplexes, shops, and eateries can remain open round-the-clock in Mumbai from January 27 for the people but they will not be permitted to serve liquor. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Mumbai Police have given the authority to such foundations, which is under gated communities and non-residential regions over the city, to stay open 24X7, said the report citing metropolitan commissioner Praveen Pardeshi.

The move was endorsed in an assembly called by Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray on January 16. The assembly was gone to by the civic chief and commissioner of police Sanjay Barve beside the shopping centers, hotels and eateries. The choice will permit at slightest 25 shopping centers, a few other shops, and eateries over the city to remain open all through. In any case, it is the choice of proprietors whether they need to keep them open 24X7 for business benefits. The days on which the foundations will stay open round-the-clock will too be chosen by the proprietor, as per the report.

The report added that consent for Kamala Mills in this respect is under survey as ward officers and police will discover out the feasibility of shopping centers. Gated communities allude to places that have CCTV surveillance, parking facilities, security guards to keep an appropriate record of all participants within the community, guarantee the security of the people entering and taking off the society and where clamour is diminished. A few of the shopping centers that will take advantage of the new norms are Atria Shopping center in Worli, R-City Shopping center (Ghatkopar), Oberoi Shopping center (Goregaon), Growel’s 101 (Kandivli), Phoenix Showcase City (Kurla) and High Street Phoenix (Lower Parel).
