The Government of Maharashtra amended the Maharashtra Shops & Establishments Act 1948. As per the "Maharashtra Shops and Establishments Act (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) 2017", all shops and establishments can remain open 24x7, except the different class of shops & establishments which serve liquors and cinema halls, which are separately notified by the State Government.

Some members approached RAI regarding the ambiguity in the amended act w.r.t. 24x7 operating permission. The same is not being properly executed by the law enforcement authorities. RAI represented to the State Government of Maharashtra seeking clarity regarding the 24x7 store opening permission in the State as per the revised Act. Click here to view the representation.

Subsequently, the State Government has issued a clarification that all the shops and establishments can remain open 24x7, subject to compliance with appropriate conditions. Click here to view the clarification issued by the State Government.
