BANGALORE: The state government is considering taking a policy decision on issuing fresh guidelines on the operation of recreational clubs in the city.

On Tuesday, the government sought more time from the high court to file a response to a bunch of petitions against the existing guidelines, issued in September 2013. The government’s application stated that as the high court has issued a stay on the current guidelines and many recreational clubs have approached the court, the government is considering framing fresh guidelines. It sought around eight weeks to file its response.

However, the court refused to grant an extension, observing that staff at recreational clubs are harassed every day by policemen and the case has been pending for long. “It seems the government is not serious about assisting the court in disposing of cases early,” the court said and asked the government to reply by Monday.
