One of my friend have permit room License u/s. 394 of Mumbai Municipal Commission Act for his restaurant in Mumbai Liquor is being served served in his restaurant. He has other license like Excise License for Liquor, Police License, Eating House License u/s. 394, Shops and Establishment License etc
But he receive the notice from BMC alleging for violation of section 394 of MMC Act. He met with department and the officer is saying that Permit Licese is for serving the alcohol in restaurant but trade license is also required for selling the alcohol in restaurant itself even though the alcohol is sold at the restaurant for consumption in restaurant only. The alcohol is never sold for consumption outside the restaurant.
Does he also require trade license under section 394 of MMC Act. Please guide me.
