NRAI wins the Hookah case in Supreme Court

After a favourable decision over the Hookah matter in the Delhi High Court last year, the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) was pursuing the SLP being heard in the Supreme Court. The Honourable Supreme Court on 8th December, 2014 has again given a favourable decision for NRAI.

This is a landmark judgement in which the Honourable Court has set aside judgements of Bombay, Madras and Gujarat High Courts. In these judgements of the High Courts, restriction imposed on smoking of Hookah with tobacco content was upheld and power was given to Municipal authorities to impose conditions in this regard.

The NRAI was founded in 1982 and is the leading association of the Indian Restaurant Industry. Headquartered at Delhi, it represents both independent and chain restaurant owners and operators in India.

The association in its 32nd year has a pan India presence with over 1,200 members in 20 cities comprising of restaurants, suppliers and educational institutes.
