Dear Manoj,

You must apply for its renewal. Suppose if an inspector approaches you have something to show him. Late fees charges you can get from your area ward office, generally there is additional fee as late fee equal to half of the fee payable for normal renewal of Registration Certificate.

Dear Surya Prabhaji,

I am an Architect Having my office in Residensial flat (Entire flat is converted in to office). I have been told by many people that Architect is service provider and doesnot require to have Shop & Est. certificate.  Is this true?

Please guide.

Due to some unavoidable circumstances we have not renewed shop license since 9 years

How much would be the penalty and late fee ?

I have heard that officer ask to settle it via Court and amount of that charge is very high, Is this the case ?

Or we just have to pay the penalty, late fee and get your license renewed, Please advice

Location Mumbai,Malad

Many many thanks in advance for any advice
