    BBMP is cracking down on rooftop pubs and restaurants

    KMC Act does not permit operation of restaurants or pubs on terraces

    As of October 28, a total of 49 rooftop establishments have been shuttered

In response to the recent incident at Mudpipe Cafe, where an individual sustained severe injuries in a fire, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is cracking down on pubs and restaurants, particularly those operating on terraces.

Inspections are underway, resulting in the cancellation of permissions and the closure of these establishments due to non-compliance.

According to BBMP’s Chief Health Officer AS Balasundar, the Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act does not permit the operation of restaurants or pubs on terraces.

Some businesses within the food and beverage industry acquire approval to function on the top floor and utilize the terrace, which violates their trade licenses. Such non-compliant businesses have been shut down, and a comprehensive report is currently being compiled as inspections continue.

The BBMP’s strict stance on disallowing terrace operations for shops and establishments has left many proprietors in a state of uncertainty.

BBMP has instructed its health officials across all wards to scrutinize pubs, hotels, and restaurants, ensuring their adherence to fire safety regulations.

Notices have been issued, leading to the closure of numerous venues for their failure to comply with fire safety protocols.

The enforcement emphasizes the importance of maintaining a hygienic kitchen and implementing adequate measures for handling flammable substances.

A significant number of establishments have been found to be in violation of regulations, resulting in the issuance of notices and the closure of several businesses. As of October 28, a total of 49 shops and establishments have been shuttered.
