Missing the 90s Mumbai when it was truly the city that never sleeps? Well, guess what! Thanks to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Mumbai Police's new decision, Mumbai is back to being the Maximum City in its truest essence.
This comes after the establishments were granted permission to host people round the clock after nearly 3 decades.
The decision was finalized after a meeting with the newly formed State government and a stamp of authority was received on the discussed proposal.
After the successful passing of this order, malls in Mumbai like High Street Phoenix at Lower Parel and Atria Mall at Worli would soon remain open 24x7.
Mumbaikars were more than happy to hear this news and were buzzing on Twitter:
Mumbai malls, eateries and multiplexes to remain open 24x7 from 27th Jan. This not only creates more job opportunities but also makes Mumbai a truly global city. Kudos to Aditya Thackeray.— . (@AyeChampa) January 18, 2020

If you frequently travel to India's financial capital, you'd know how the nightlife had stalled in the city after a blanket ban came into effect decades ago.
