No separate ‘Crooner’s licence’ required for lady performers in Bars: Calcutta HC [Read Judgment]

The Court also added that the above requirement shall be read in to the conditions of licence already issued in favour of the hotel-cum-bar-cum-restaurant under the provisions of the Bengal Excise Act and the breach thereof shall be construed to be a breach of conditions of licence of the establishment itself. Fresh licences issued to new establishments shall include such condition as a part of the licence, the court said.

Last month, the Supreme Court had upheld a Bombay High Court’s order to allow dance bars to operate again in Maharashtra.
