Hos­pi­tal­ity Sec­tor Ex­pects Bet­ter Prof­its With 24x7 Shifts

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

The spirit is high in ho­tels and restau­rants in an­tic­i­pa­tion of a higher foot­fall of pa­trons, but the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor is a bit low; be­cause wa­ter­ing holes are ex­cluded from the list of es­tab­lish­ments that can op­er­ate 24x7 in the state. The state gov­ern­ment has amended the Ma­ha­rash­tra Shops and Es­tab­lish­ments (Reg­u­la­tion of Em­ploy­ment and Ser­vice Con­di­tion) Act, 2017, al­low­ing shops, ho­tels, restau­rants and malls to re­main open round-the-clock in three shifts. Bars, pubs, wine shops and dis­cothe­ques will con­tinue to func­tion in the re­stricted tim­ings. The Ho­tel and Res­tau­rant As­so­ci­a­tion of West­ern In­dia said job op­por­tu­ni­ties might go up by 25 per cent in the state be­cause of the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion. As­so­ci­a­tion sources said the state’s de­ci­sion might not be im­ple­mented im­me­di­ately, as lo­gis­tics such as staff strength, salaries, and the fea­si­bil­ity of keep­ing the es­tab­lish­ments open round-the-clock have to be checked. They said the po­lice’s re­spon­si­bil­ity would go up in terms of main­tain­ing law and or­der in the changed sce­nario.
