STATE’S STRINGENT RULES

The con­di­tions say dance bars must be at least a km away from any ed­u­ca­tional or re­li­gious in­sti­tu­tion

The dance bars must restrict tim­ings to be­tween 6pm and 11.30pm, and not serve liquor in the per­for­mance area

The rules man­date a 9.30pm dead­line for dancers

New bill fixes ac­count­abil­ity on the owner if rules are vi­o­lated and if it is found women are be­ing ex­ploited.
