'Only in-house guests of hotels can eat at restaurants' : Maharashtra Government

Friday, September 4, 2020, 14:00 Hrs  [IST]

According to TOI, the state government clarified on Wednesday evening that only in-house guests could eat at restaurants of hotels with room facilities, as all restaurants and bars were yet to be opened in the state.

Hotel industry members had written to the government seeking clarity on the issue and sought subsidies on the lines of UK, where 50% of the food bill is being borne by government.

“As part of Mission Begin Again, Maharashtra government had issued an order on August 31 in which restaurants do not feature on a list of prohibited activities. But the order states that hotels and lodges can operate at 100% capacity. As restaurants do not feature in prohibited activities for Maharashtra, we presume they are allowed to reopen with dine-in services from September 1. We request immediate clarity as most members are anxious,” the letter by Gurbaxish Singh Kohli, president of Hotels and Restaurants Association Western India, to chief minister Uddhav Thackeray had stated.

“The ‘Eat out to help out’ recovery measure by UK government to support 72,000 restaurants and pubs following the lockdown is helping save jobs of 1.8 million chefs. Why can’t we take up such innovative assistance to encourage the industry and promote healthy eating practices the industry has committed to?” Kamlesh Barot, former president of FHRAI, told TOI. Takeaways and deliveries are allowed at present.
