SC Vacated its Stay Order on running of Dance Bars in Maharashtra

Jul 17, 2013 14:58 IST

Supreme Court of IndiaThe Supreme Court of India on 16 July 2013 upheld a Bombay High Court verdict which quashed the state government’s order to  ban dance bars in Maharashtra. The dance bars were banned in 2004. A bench comprising Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice S S Nijjar also vacated its stay order on implementation of the high court judgement.

The Maharashtra government had in 2005 brought in an amendment in the Bombay Police Act which was challenged in the high court by an association representing restaurants and bars. The high court in 2006 had quashed the government's decision. The state government had moved the apex court against the high court's order that same year. The Supreme Court while admitting the government's plea had stayed the Bombay high court's verdict.
