New law allowing stores stay open 24x7 not viable: Survey

Aug '16
A new law passed by the Indian cabinet which allows allowing shops, malls and other establishments to remain open throughout the year may not be viable due to the poor law and order situation, a survey informed.

A survey of 12,788 citizens by online citizen engagement platform LocalCircles revealed that 73 per cent are of the opinion that law and order situation is not in place to support 24x7 operations of cinemas, eateries and malls.

The union cabinet had recently approved the Model Shops and Establishments (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Bill, 2016, but is not expected to have a significant impact on operations of these establishments.

The new law covers establishments employing 10 or more workers except manufacturing units and offers the freedom to remain open 365 days with flexibility on open and closing times, with women also being allowed to work during night hours.

“When asked whether they want malls and eateries to function 24x7, 50 per cent voted in the positive, 49 per cent said no and one per cent said 'Can't say' in the survey,” media reports quoting the survey said.

The high percentage of negative feedback was received due to safety concerns for customers as well as employees, as police stations are not adequately staffed to protect them, particularly at night. (AR)
