Kathmandu, January 4:

Cabin and dance restaurants’ owners today demanded legal provisions to help monitor and regulate their activities.

Speaking at a ‘Consultation to Facilitate Adoption of Code of Ethics in Cabin/Dance Restaurants’ organised by RAHAT, Manoj KC, president of the Association of Restaurant Entrepreneurs Nepal said, “A legal provision would help the law enforcing agencies to take action against any restaurant conducting illegal activities.”

Such a law would define the activities permitted or not in the restaurants.

Bala Ram Sharma, deputy superintendent of police at Valley Crime Investigation Branch, said, a legal provision is must to make the restaurant owners accountable and also to improve their functioning pattern.

The Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare (MoWCSW) formed a committee under the coordination of joint secretary of MoWCSW to prepare a report regarding the restaurants to formulate the policies related to them and solve the problems faced by the restaurant entrepreneurs as well as employees in the restaurants.
