Mumbai, 12th January 2022: The Maharashtra state government has ordered that shop signboards in the state should be in Marathi (Devnagri script) prominently They can have names in other languages also on the signboard.

The decision was taken today during the Cabinet meeting headed by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

It was found that establishments and shops with less than ten workers were evading the rules as the Maharashtra Shops and Establishments (Regulations of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 2017. Many such complaints were received by the government.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet today decided to amend the Maharashtra Shops and Establishments Act, 2017, and close the loopholes. Therefore, the boards/signs of small shops will have to be written in Marathi just like the big ones. Considering that most of the shops and commercial establishments have less than ten workers, the signs on all the shops along the road will be seen in Marathi from now on. An amendment has also been approved that the letters in Marathi (Devnagari script) cannot be kept shorter than letters in other scripts.
