Cinema Theaters To Be Open 24/7, Shopping Malls To Be Open 24/7, Restaurants To Be Open 24/7, Banks To Be Open 24/7
Good news to all entertainment seekers and shopping lovers. The Union cabinet approved the Model Shops and Establishments Bill, which will permit shops, Shopping malls, restaurants, banks and cinema halls to run 24 hrs all days for 365 days in a year.
Union finance minister Arun Jaitley said the Model Shops and Establishment Bill will improve ease of doing business and generating employment opportunities.
Labor and Employment Ministry said in a statement that Women
too are permitted to work during night shift, if the provision of shelter, rest room, ladies toilet, adequate protection of their dignity and transportation etc exists.
While major retailers are welcoming this decision as it will not only create thousands of jobs but also give opportunity to customers to do shopping any time 24/7. But some are opposing that allowing establishments to remain open 24×7 could expose the trading community to several threats.
