Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Tuesday that the Supreme Court has ordered to issue licenses for dance bars in Mumbai.
However, the Maharashtra government is adamant on not opening the dance bars.
“We are willing to bring a new bill in next assembly session so dance bars are not opened in Mumbai,” Fadnavis said.
The Supreme Court had earlier modified seven conditions put by the Maharashtra Police for the issuance of licences to hotels and restaurants in Mumbai.
The apex court had ordered to exclude installation of CCTV cameras from restaurants and dance performance place.
The Maharashtra government had banned dance bars in 2005. But in October last year the Supreme Court had overruled the state, saying that those working there had a right to livelihood.
