Shopping Centre News|February 2020
Adding the next level to the legendary nightlife of Mumbai, the Maharashtra government has finally given a thumbs up to a proposal with far-reaching economic ramifications. From January 27, selected shopping malls, eateries, multiplexes and some other retail establishments can remain operational 24/7.
