The Supreme Court on Thursday strikes down the stringent rules on Maharashtra dance bars. The court said dance and liquor can go together.
The top court allowed orchestra and added that tips can be given but showering of cash and coins is not allowed inside bars.
Supreme Court said, “There cannot be a total prohibition on dance bars. No licence has been granted by Maharashtra since 2005. There may be regulations but that should not amount to a total prohibition.”
The court quashed conditions of Maharashtra government of putting CCTV cameras in dance bars of Mumbai, giving licence to people of good character as 'vague'.
