In Delhi, 55 commercial buildings are given permission to operate 24×7

NEW DELHI: In a move that may further improve ‘night life’ in Delhi, lieutenant governor VK Saxena on Monday gave his approval to allow 55 establishments to operate on a 24×7 basis.
Located in different parts of the city, these establishments are engaged in various commercial activities such as e-commerce outlets, and retail garment and accessories businesses. The proposal to allow these businesses work 24×7 was moved by the labour department and endorsed by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The LG had, in October 2022, given approval to let 314 commercial establishments, including hotels, eateries, online food delivery and pharmacies, work round the clock.
Officials claimed some of the applications had been pending for several months. These businesses have been exempted from sections 14, 15 and 16 of the Delhi Shops and Establishments Act, 1954, which deal in “working hours” and “weekly off”.
Earlier, Saxena had flagged “unprofessional attitude and lack of due diligence” by the labour department. “Following these observations, the department has taken several corrective steps. To ensure transparent and effective monitoring, an online system has been developed for receipt of application of exemption under the relevant sections of Delhi Shops & Establishment Act, 1954,” said an official.
