SC says bar and dance can go together


The Supreme Court has eased the rules for dance bars in Maharashtra, striking down stringent laws imposed by the state. The top court said dance and liquor can go together.

A provision mandating that dance bars in the state should be 1 km away from religious places and educational institutions was cancelled by the court, saying it is not reasonable in Mumbai and that the legislature must take a decision on this.

Performers at dance bars can be paid tips but cannot be showered with cash, the top court said.
