In different parts of the city, the hotel business is being done by setting up sheds on the terraces of buildings, as well as in common spaces. This creates a parking problem on the roads of the area, and the hotels remain open until late at night, causing inconvenience to the residents of the area. There are frequent complaints from citizens about parking and noise pollution. Taking cognizance of this, the PMC had started taking action against rooftop hotels.

After a builder’s son drove a speeding car in front of the Bowler Pub in Kalyaninagar which resulted in the deaths of two people, the PMC has ordered an inspection of illegal constructions in pubs, hotels, and restaurants and has sent a team to inspect the Bowler Pub.
