Restaurant owners appeal to Delhi CM for help



NEW DELHI: A delegation from National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) met chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to apprise him of the problems faced by the industry due to the coronavirus pandemic and persistent issues, such as multiple licences required by eateries, difficulty in renewal of existing licences, excise-related concerns and separate fire NOC requirement.
The delegation also requested the drinking age be brought down in Delhi to 21 years and operation timings be extended till 3 am from Friday to Sunday.

Restaurateur and former president of NRAI, Riyaaz Amlani, who was part of the meeting, said that the CM assured them of help in reviving the industry. Amlani explained the major requests were reforming the licencing process by reducing the number of licences and moving from license to registration regime with standard validity of approvals for a period of five years.
The restaurateurs also urged removal of the requirement for separate fire NOC. They requested that display of signage on the facade should not attract fees as it does at present.
