The Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) has welcomed the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai’s (MCGM) decision to streamline the licencing process for hospitality industry. MCGM through a circular has eliminated the multiplicity and duplicity of many licences and limited them to just three relevant to hotels with immediate effect. The move also entails issuance of a composite licence for the hospitality industry within a stipulated timeframe, saving businesses both time and money.

Going forward hospitality establishments will be able to obtain licences for commencing and operating business by submitting a single application form through a Single Window System.

“This decision is music to all HRAWI members’ ears and we, at HRAWI welcome it whole-heartedly. We are thankful to the MCGM and the Government of Maharashtra (GoM) for having viewed our request with a positive approach,” said Dilip Datwani, President, HRAWI.

Of the several points listed out in the circular, weightage has been placed on ensuring that the licencing process be simple, unambiguous, and devoid of duplicity in submission of applications. With the streamlining, businesses will now be able to register online for Shops and Establishment (S&E) through MCGM web portal and its renewal could be done through its mobile app.

 There were 19 licences required to be obtained and most of them were repetitive in nature. Many of these licences were merged or done away with and a online Single Window system to obtain licences have been established.
