"If Salons Can Run, Why Not Spas": Delhi High Court asks AAP Government

Delhi High Court AAP Government

The court was hearing two pleas moved by several persons who run spas which have been shut since the first lockdown was enforced in Delhi. If salons are working, then why not spas, asked the Delhi High Court while telling the AAP government to re-look its decision prohibiting the operation of spas in the national capital. 

The query was posed to the Delhi government by Justice Navin Chawla who said prima facie there is merit in the submission of the spa owners that if saloons are allowed to operate, then they too should be permitted to function.

The court directed the Delhi government to take a fresh decision with regards to running of spas based on the submissions made by its owners and file an affidavit within a week indicating what it has decided. With the direction, the court listed the matter for further hearing on December 16, 2020.

The court was hearing two pleas moved by several persons who run spas which have been shut since the first lockdown was enforced in Delhi. During the hearing, the spa owners contended that the guidelines issued by the Centre have permitted spas to open subject to maintenance of social distancing and other COVID-19 appropriate behaviour.

However, the Delhi government was not permitting them to operate, even though saloons, restaurants and every other business has been allowed in the national capital, they contended before the court. The Centre also made it clear that all activities which have not been specifically prohibited under its guidelines are allowed to operate outside containment zones.
