A dhaba with an AC hall, tables and chairs can no longer be termed as one and needs to register itself as a restaurant. This is part of the new instructions issued by the excise and taxation department, which sent teams to randomly check sales at various dhabhas across the city on Friday.
The members of the checking teams stated that many such dhabas had sales that crossed more than a crore per annum but were still only paying the lumpsum dhaba tax.
The teams of assistant excise and town planner (AETC) Jaskaran Brar, however, faced protests at Reikhy Cinema Chowk. The dhaba owners in the area downed their shutters and did not allow the teams to check their sales.
