i am planing to open hukka bar in mumbai. Need to know total licenses required for it, as well as procedure to obtain it.

  • ansMake application to obtain trade license from Municipal corporation of Mumbai,  to run hookah bar . The commisisoner may grant permission subject to conditions that teenagers should not be allowed and ingredients used should in hookah should be permissible and not against anti tobacco laws.
    In addition you must have licence for selling tobacco from Bombay Municipal Corporation. Further smoking zone should be separate from resturant area if resturant is also being run in same premises . If licensing conditions are violated hookah bars may be directed to be closed down and license revoked.
    You would also require, registration under Bombay Shop and Establishment Act, Food Safety and Standards Authority, storage license from Bombay Municipal Corporation.
