New Year or new Gurgaon? Age restrictions by Gurgaon police to lessen crime in new year
It's the holiday season and because Gurgaon is a millennium city, with people all around the world, the city gets decked up in the festive mood. Key places such as Cyber Hub, MG Road and Galleria would go all out to celebrate the coming of the new year. While teetotalers can get high on the array of new dishes, for people who drink, it would be tough if they are yet to be 25 years of age or do not have an identification proof.

In order to check the number of the crimes in the city, the authorities have made it clear that the pub owners would have to verify people coming in their premises and that 25 years or younger people would not be allowed entry.

As was reported by timesofindia, a police officer talking about this age restriction said, ''Pub-going couples will also have to prove their identity. The main motive behind the exercise is to check the entry of people under the age of 25 years as mandated by in the law.''

The pub owners are now required to keep a softcopy log of the people visiting their pubs. The police are trying to make the city as safe as they can. In order to keep up with the safety issues as their first priority, the authorities have also asked pub owners to install cctv camera at the entry and exit points as well as within their pubs. They are also required to hire people as bouncers, so that at times of hooliganism, these people can help out.

For people who wants to party hard on the night of December 31, they must think again as a number of roads would be in the police radar and drunk driving would not be allowed or tolerated. Also vehicles on Mehrauli-Gurgaon road would not be allowed to move after 6pm on December 31. People driving from IIFCO chowk towards MG road would not be allowed beyond the IIFCO chowk. Special parkings in and around Leisure Valley near Sector 29 would be arranged for the day.
