Part of Delhi will close the spa centres where women are employed to provide massage to men The BJP-led South Corporation on Monday decided that it will soon change its policy on operation of spas and massage parlours, which will also include a ban on massage service offered by a person of the opposite sex. Many of these spa and massage parlours run sex rackets as a result of which a decision will shortly be taken to ban such parlours where opposite gender provides the service.
Leader of House in the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) Kamaljeet Sehrawat claimed the move comes after receiving complaints from people about “illicit activities” going in many parlours.
She raised the issue during a meeting of the SDMC’s Standing Committee on Wednesday.
“We have been working on this issue for quite some time and today we decide that the policy needs a change. The new policy would come into effect soon. To begin with, we are going to publish the list of 297 spas and parlours which have been issued licence by SDMC so that people know the legal ones,” she said.
It has also been decided that CCTV cameras should be installed in areas from the lobby to the main room, she said.
The Delhi Commission for Women has been assisting the city police in conducting raids at various spas and parlours in Delhi which were allegedly running sex rackets.
