Hotels in state to remain open till midnight

In order to boost tourism and facilitate people visiting various places in late hours, AP government issued orders to allow hotels to operate till midnight 12. The government order issued by labour department however mentioned that this rule will not be applicable for bar & restaurants. 

The move will also boost revenue for the hotels as they can now function till 12 as compared to the earlier closing timing of 10:30 PM.

The move will is also expected to boost the state’s revenue generation from taxes and will also promote night life along with providing access to food for people with odd working hours.
