The Municipal Council Udhampur (MCU) set norms and guidelines for banquet halls and hostels to tighten the noose around listed banquet halls without adequate parking space, to declare them illegal and to cancel licenses of the one flouting norms.
However, According to the rules, owners need to submit an application to the civic body to construct a marriage hall and it is mandatory banquet halls should have adequate parking space.
Notably, mushrooming of banquet halls across Udhampur is not just disrupting city traffic but also choking major roads for hours every day, residents and civic. During the marriage season, the city traffic gets congested at a number of key places, resulting in long traffic snarls, inconveniencing pedestrians and motorists
“Our teams will keep conducting surprise checks to crack down on banquet halls without parking facility and to verify if norms and rules are being followed and we even cancel licenses whenever needed,” officials said while speaking to Young Bites.
“We will serve a notice to banquet hall management and ask them to close their operations and also give them the reason for the cancellation of their license,” the official said. “They can also rectify their errors and apply for the license again with the municipal corporation.”
Pertinently, the city roads are already narrow and remain congested on any given day and now with a large number of marriage halls that have come up, the traffic problem has increased manifold and motorists take almost double the time to reach their destinations during the wedding season.
