Licence granted to 10 more bars: Govt tells HC
cancel

Kochi: The state government on Monday informed the High Court that it has granted licences to 10 more bars in compliance with the court's directions.

When the matter came up before Justice AV Ramakrishna Pillai, bar owners complained that the government was demanding a higher amount towards licence fee.

The government submitted that the excess amount was being levied towards additional services like lawn services.

Justice Pillai sought an explanation from the government in this regard and adjourned the case to February 4.

The High Court had earlier directed the government to grant licences to 10 more bars belonging to three-star and four-star category. Challenging this decision, the government filed appeals before a division bench and in the Supreme Court.

Both courts refused to stay the order and the government had to grant licences.
