Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, September 21

After conducting surprise security checks across the town, the city Police Commissionerate frames stricter rules for restaurants, bars, pubs and liquor stores. From Tuesday midnight onwards, the rules will remain in force for the next two months to avert any untoward incident.

What the order says

  • No order for food, beverages, alcohol, etc, will be taken by any restaurant, bar, pub, club, etc, situated under the jurisdiction of the city Police Commissionerate after 11 pm
  • All restaurants, clubs, bars, pubs or any other such licenced eating or drinking place (except ahatas) should completely be closed by 12 midnight

Exercising the powers vested under Section 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, Jagmohan Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Jalandhar, said stricter curbs were imposed to stop unnecessary vehicular movement during night hours.

As per the new directions, after 11 pm, no order for food, beverages, alcohol, etc, will be taken by any restaurant, bar, pub, club, etc, situated under the jurisdiction of the city Police Commissionerate.

No new customer would be allowed to enter the premises of the restaurants, clubs, bars, pubs after 11 pm. All restaurants, clubs, bars, pubs or any other such licensed eating or drinking place (except ahatas) should completely be closed by 12 in the midnight.

In case of ahatas attached to liquor vends, they have to be completely closed by 11 pm as per the conditions of the licence.

Considering the directions of the Supreme Court of India, the noise produced by any noise source should not exceed 10 dB above the ambient noise standards for the area or 75 dB (A), whichever is lower. Hence, all establishments should ensure that these standards are maintained. Moreover, all sound-producing sources like DJs, live orchestra and singers should be switched off or volume lowered at 10 pm. After the scheduled time, no sound produced within any establishment or campus should be heard outside the boundary of such establishment.

The DCP further added that in case of vehicles with music system, it should be ensured that the sound produced by the music system should not be heard outside the vehicle at anytime of the day. This order would remain in force for the next two months from today onwards.
