BBMP asks Indiranagar barto produce trade licence

The BBMP on Tuesday asked a popular rooftop bar-cum-restaurant in Indiranagar to produce its trade licence and other important documents in a week's time.

Following a high court order, BBMP Joint Commissioner (East) Ashok held a meeting on Tuesday with owners of the bar 'Tippler On the Roof' and representatives of eight residents' welfare associations in the area.

The high court had asked the authorities to hear out the bar owners. Officials said the bar owners had been asked to produce the trade licence, building plan sanction, clearances from the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board and the fire force.

The main charge against the restaurant is that it functioned on the rooftop without necessary permissions.

Residents' welfare associations in the locality have also accused the restaurant of playing music beyond the prescribed decibel levels and failing to comply with fire safety norms.

'Act against violators'

"We've also asked the authorities to act against several other rooftop restaurants that failed to comply with rules," said
Raj Kumar Pillai, a local resident.

The restaurant has been asked to submit the documents to the joint commissioner by January 30. Ashok was not available for comment.
