Gurugram, July 1

Complying with the orders of Haryana state pollution control board, Gurugram district administration on Friday sealed as many as 11 restaurants and pubs in Sector 29 area.

The establishments were reportedly operating without state pollution board’s Clearance to Operate (CTO), hence orders of sealing, after thorough enquiry, were issued. Adhering to the directive, district administration appointed Satish Rohilla as duty magistrate to lead the whole process.

Speaking to The Tribune, DC Nishant Yadav said, “We acted on orders of pollution control boards and arranged execution team”.

The sealed establishments include Big Shark restaurants private limited, ACE hospitality, Sandy’s hospitality, Meera Samuh hospitality services private limited, Ginga restaurants, Tata Starbucks private limited, Lee Gee hospitality, SGN enterprises, GNM food and beverages private limited , Duty free (a unit of Kaizen brewing), Rudra hospitality Private limited.

The orders state that the establishments were operating restaurant/bar units which pollute the nature and are in green category. The establishments were visited by field officials along with Naib Tehsildars and duty magistrates on March 3 and it was discovered that none of the sealed establishments had a CTO.

Gurugram’s Sector 29 is a major party and dining hub in the city with over 50 restaurants and pubs operating in the area. The sealing ahead of weekend has rattled entire restaurant industry in the area.
