BICMA SUSPENDS APPROVAL OF NEW ENTERTAINMENT LICENSES
Bhutan InfoComm and Media Authority (BICMA) has temporarily suspended issuing new entertainment licenses to open entertainment clubs since last month. Entertainment centers include drayangs, discotheques, karaoke, snooker and video game parlors.
BICMA stated that the issuance of licences will be suspended until it comes up with a study on these centers. The temporary suspension is to find out whether the existing entertainment centers are following regulations that are in place or not. Today, Thimphu has more than 80 entertainment centers.
