McDonald’s outlets will reopen when the required licences have been

 

LATEST NEWS : US fast food chain McDonald’s 43 outlets in the national capital operated without valid ‘health licences’ for nearly three months from April 1, its estranged India partner Vikram Bakshi has alleged.

 

Last month, McDonald’s had decided to shut down 43 of the total 55 outlets here due to failure to renew eating house licences.

 

Bakshi, an equal joint venture partner of McDonald’s India Pvt Ltd (MIPL) in Connaught Plaza Restaurants Ltd (CPRL), the licensee for North and East India regions, said licences had expired on March 31.

 

“From April 1 to June 27, 2017, we did not have any health licence, it’s absolutely correct,” Bakshi told PTI.

 

He has been at loggerheads with McDonald’s since 2013 when he was removed as the managing director of CPRL and is contesting it at legal forums, including the London Court of Arbitration.

 

Bakshi said the health licence was necessary from local municipal bodies to run the restaurants for water hygiene and proper maintenance of food, among others.
