Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray stated that the proposal to boost nightlife in Mumbai by allowing eateries and multiplexes to stay open 24x7 has been passed by the cabinet today (January 22). He said that malls, multiplexes, shops and eateries in non-residential areas like Bandra Kurla Complex&Nariman Point will remain open 24x7 from January 27. The decision was taken at a meeting called by Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray last Thursday. While a law allowing such establishments in Maharashtra to stay open round-the-clock through the week was passed in 2017, it was not implemented in Mumbai. The law amended Maharashtra Shops and Establishments (Regulation of Employment and Service Condition) Act, 2017 which allows shops, hotels, and malls to remain open round-the-clock through the week in Maharashtra was passed by state assembly by Devendra Fadnavis government.
