GUWAHATI, Sept 4 - Two prominent bars in the city were running against a single licence. After the fact came to light, the Excise department has ordered cancellation of the licence.
The licensee, Daksha Das, was operating the two bars �Woking Mama� located at Dona Planet and �Brooklyn Blues� on GS Road without valid permission from any �competent authority�. A showcause was earlier issued to the licensee.
�It was found that liquor was served in an additional hall also other than the actual licence premises. Virtually there are two bars against a single licence in the name and style of �Woking Mama� and �Brooklyn Blues� without valid permission from a competent authority. The stock and sale register was also not updated,� the Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup Metro said in an order, cancelling the licence.
�The bar is not functioning in strict adherence to licence condition and rules under the Assam Excise Rules, 2016 and Assam Excise Act, 2000. Therefore it is subject to cancellation under Section 30 (1)(C) of Assam Excise Act. 2000,� the order added.
