Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Friday, said that a committee is being formed to finalise the draft of a new bill on dance bars in Mumbai.

“Will nominate committee with members from Legislative Assembly and Council which will finalize the draft of new bill on dance bars,” Fadnavis said.

“Committee will give it's report in three days then we will bring new bill in budget session itself,” he added.

Fadnavis government has moved to stop the reopening of dance bars after Supreme Court's order last week asking the BJP-led Maharashtra government to grant licences to dance bar owners within ten days after they comply with modified guidelines.
