Guwahati Municipal Corporation charges Rs 50,000 from unlicensed parlour, salon. Guwahati News – Times of India


Guwahati: Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) continues its business license inspection drive in Unisex parlors, Salon, restaurants and bars in the city and collected around Rs 50,000 from a business operating without a valid business license in just three days.
GMC senior medical officer Dr Kumar Partha Pratim said the civic body collected around Rs 50,000 in the last three days from five unisex parlors, two beauty parlors and a bar-cum-restaurant for operating their business without valid trade license. Huh.
GMC has issued notice to the owners of commercial establishments which do not have valid business license.
The GMC on Sunday had issued some strict guidelines for spas, unisex parlors and salons, including a ban on treatment by the opposite sex to curb illegal activities, including alleged prostitution rackets, in the city.
Stating that certain guidelines have been laid down for salons and parlors to obtain trade licenses, GMC commissioner Debashish Sharma said, “After receiving several complaints from civil society, rules have been laid down to prevent malpractice or illegal activities. To obtain a trade license, the owners have to follow the guidelines.”
The GMC has prohibited treatment or massage of the opposite sex in salons or parlors. The GMC has ordered to make the main doors of the parlor or saloon transparent from now on. According to the new rules, there cannot be a special room or chamber inside any salon or parlor.
