The week gone by had both good and bad news for the hospitality industry in Maharashtra. On one hand, when Maharashtra government imposed a night curfew dampening hopes for Christmas and year-end, on the other the state government decided to give concession in the liquor license fees for the lockdown period.
Night curfew shattered hopes
The Maharashtra government’s decision to impose a night curfew in the state has put rest to any hopes that the sector had of earning some revenue from year-end celebrations.
The hospitality industry - among the hardest hit by the lockdown as people preferred home-cooked meals and put off outings – is slowly getting back on its feet, and was hoping to ring in good times with the New Year.
