Dress code for women bartenders in Bangalore soon

Dress code for women bartenders in Bangalore soon

Bangalore, Jul 10 (IANS): Women employed in bars and restaurants in this tech city to serve liquor and food will soon have a dress code to ensure their safety and security, an official said late Wednesday.

"We have submitted to the Karnataka High Court a set of guidelines to be strictly followed by owners of bars and restaurants employing women to serve their customers," a state home department official told IANS here.

The guidelines were issued on the directive of the high court in response to a petition by the Bangalore Ladies' Working Bar and Restaurants Owners' Association, which accused the police of shutting down bars and restaurants employing women on grounds of indecency and causing public nuisance.

According to the guidelines, the women employed by licensed bars and restaurants should be 21 years and above, wear full trousers and full shirt or T shirt with or without a blazer or a salwar kameez (a Punjabi suite) to prevent any indecent display of their body.

"The high court has directed the city police to allow licensed bars and restaurants to hire women bartenders in accordance with the guidelines and see how they conduct over the next three months," the official said.

Association counsel R. Goplakrishna said the owners would study the notification and find out how best they can comply with it as they would have to bear an additional expenditure to also meet other requirements.

"The guidelines will add to the operational cost of running a bar and restaurant, as owners have not only to pay salary to the women bartenders, but also provide a decent dress and arrange for their transport from home and back to ensure their safety and security," Gopalakrishna told IANS.

In addition to securing license to open and run a bar and restaurant at a hefty fee, owners will have to get approvals from the city civic body - Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) or town municipal council - to employ women. They will also be required to furnish details about women employees to the local police and get their uniform vetted by the licensing authority within 30 days of getting the license.

"The guidelines also mandate installing high resolution CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras of 24 mega pixel in and around the bar, keep its footage for at least three months for verification or investigation and deploy private security guards to ensure their safety and security," Gopalakrishna said.

The government has also banned hiring men, women and transgenders for dancing or any form of entertainment in bars and restaurants.

"Owners have also to ensure that customers do not indulge in gesticulating at women bartenders obscenely, flinging currency notes at them, passing lewd remarks or offering any sort of inducement to them," the official said.

The guidelines include laws applicable for sexual harassment of women at workplace and ban on taking their photographs by customers.

"The city police commissioner will issue the guidelines to all licensed bars and restaurants for compliance within in the next two months," the official added.

Govt is having so many popular plans in pipeline.
Cheap Liquor, Wine at Vegetable Vendors and now dress code for Women bartenders!
Govt should invite activist like Mutalik for suggestions.
He is sure to recommend full cover dress, gloves with even face covered.

I have never seen any Bar & Restaurant in M'lore, where lady bar tenders are employed. Is there any probablity..in the near future.... No. Then why so much of controversy about their dress code. Even if I happen to be at scuh place, I would have my regular two to .... pegs and good food. No bar tenders and no controvesies.

Hi Jossey,
For retraining them to mingle with Customers, surely bartenders will attempt to mingle with Poor Policemen!
I hope Govt will not send Policemen to other places like xxxxxxxx to prevent women from mingling with men.
Our Policemen are very trustworthy!
Have a nice time!

dear freinds,
Tell me where ladies are safe in this world? Secondly ladies are harrassed by school principal, so stop them to go to school, they raped in hospitals, stop them, they harrassed in market place, stop them, A flight from mangalore to dubai, in which 4 guys harresed a air hostes, stop them from that, A father spents lakhs of money during her wedding, after sometime her husband starts harresment, stop marraiges, dear freinds we are people who mistreat them, we have a problem in ourself, i law permits us do everything. I have heard in gulf each hotel has 5-6 bars, there are more than 1000 hotels in dubai itself, ladies work there, earn good money, & most of the costumers are asians, why there is no harresment, only because of law.

There should be a no 'undress code' for men too then,who attend these bars.It's these who want to undress typically are the 'root' cause of all problems!A '8 P.M.'survey would confirm this.

This is ridiculous. Why should the Government get into this ? Instead, I think the Government should make it a rule for the bar owners to provide compulsory training for the women in any form of martial art or self defense techniques.

Heri Fernandes, MANGALORE/UK
Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Absolutely Yes... As long as the female member of my family is comfortable with the job, I would honestly NOT stop them from working in a bar.. Let the men think what they want Jossy, as long as my family member is on right track I have nothing to worry.. The problem in our society is that we are scared to be different... We are worried that we will be looked down by the society for being different... But its those who dare to be different (positively) that bring the positive changes in the society!

Would you marry your son to any female working in a bar - be honest....

Yes Ofcourse...By all means if my son (who is not born yet) has no problem... Lets not continue this argument Jossy, as the way you and I think seems to be on two very different scales! Have a good week ahead!

@ Flavian & Jossy,

can you guys name the fields in which our women should work and not in your terms and what should they were and what not, which education they should have and which not ... do not forget because of them you today exist. Give them respect and let them live like all other men having equal rights to earn and spend.

Should given different 'dress code' for all Bars.. atleast can able to identify..bartenders from which 'Bar'..like in Airlines..!!

Anna Bollu

Excellent idea it will work out high standard to recognize Bar like different Airlines .

Heri Fernandes, MANGALORE/UK
Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Flavian, very narrow minded approach! Then why do the women fight for equal opportunity? Just because men think wild when they are drunk, you think the solution is to ban the women from working at a bar? Guys might think naughty about women acting in a movie.. So ban them from acting in the films? Then the men can wear salwar, saree and bangles and act for the women!! No job is menial... its one's thinking makes that makes a job decent or indecent! Get it right!

One thing it is sure the dress code of bartenders in the bars are a way towards losing a section of customers to the bars and losing the business as well.

Jossy, utter rubbish! Its your mind that makes you think that the job in a bar is not decent! The bottle that flows down your throat is DIVINE...But the people who serve these drinks are indecent? What a hypocrisy..

Bollu, Mangalore

Mr. Jossey with your comment you just proved to the whole world what an hypocrite you are. Its people like you who will sit on the front table of a dance bar and watch the girls dance. While you walk out of the bar you will have a toothpick in your mouth and you will say that women has no character. You have NO RIGHT to assassinate someoneís character based on their job. First learn the term dignity of Labor. I know there are mothers who have worked in Bars and have given decent education to their children. Just pray tonight when you go to sleep that a women in your family doesn't come to you to inform she works in a Bar Cos Iím sure at this retirement age of you might have to eat your own words.

We should consider and treat women equal to men in this modern world. Women are capable to handle any task equal to men can perform if given enough opportunities.
There is nothing wrong women serving in bars or restaurants if men can do the same. It is good and advisable to women in these places especially where the alcohol is served to dress appropriately to avoid inviting unprecedented situations. This is only because of our uncultured and narrow minded behavior of our Indian dominated males. (sorry, Iím not targeting whole male population)
First of all our people and their mentalities need to be changed and educate them to behave like human beings in this modern society. This will get rid of their evil mind and open up for acceptance of women and their rights in the same society in which the men live.

What about Mutalik dress code & code of conduct?
May be government has taken advice from him?

Valerian Dsouza, Udupi/Mumbai
Thursday, July 11, 2013

Excellent dear ESKEY,
What an idea!
Bartenders dress code must be in consultation with Mr. Mutalik, should be finalized only after he gives GREEN (PINK) signal!

Flavian, Mangalore/Kuwait
Wednesday, July 10, 2013


If the government and public are so concerned about ladies dress code (ladies serving in the Bars), why in the first instance, ladies are allowed to work in the bars ? That is not a decent job for ladies to earn decent livelihood.

In my opinion, wine, dine & girls would go hand in hand. Men overdrink and tend to misbehave, that is quite natural.

Wearing Pant & T shirt or Salvar Kameez is not the solution. Men are naughty even after fifty.

Ban ladies working in the Bars.

I know, I am going to get maax. disagree from men.

at one moment u people cry saying equal working rights and equal pay and now u want to pick and choose where and when u people want to work.. There thousands of girls working as bartenders across the Globe.. Bring out the right punishment and then see how tables turn... cos as per your comment women are meant to be doing house work and men in the corporate world.. its 2013 everyone has to do everything to earn a living..

ESKEY, UDUPI

Why Flavian women should not work in bars? Bar girls are not working in Muscat, Bahrain and Dubai? If they are not forced to to a job and if they opt to take up a job like this I think we (men) should not have any problem. I also don't think any bar girl will blame the men (coming to their bar) because that is why they are there in the first place.
I beleive prostitution should be legalized and rule of law should be strictly implemented
Regarding dress code - I am not too sure how it will work. It sounds equally comfortable when somebody goes for swimming in full suit. Isn't it?
Anyway, good luck congress government. wise decisions one after the other. I have no doubt left that we are one course to become MODEL state

Keep same dress code as of Air Hostess..!!
Both are doing the same job...
One give kick from down other's from up..!!

Make sure while serving liquor to Men at Bars, Keep a tab on their consumption levels. After getting heavily drunk, some men behave obscenely. Their jokes, discussion wil revolve around women-bartender. She may need a Z category commando to save from these men.
