Mylapore police have slapped a case against Kaviko Convention Centre in CIT Colony for running this space without a ‘public resort’ licence.
This is a licence required by anybody to uses his/her space for public events. The Commissioner of Police issues this licence.
Kaviko Centre, located off TTK Road has been a buzzing centre for literary, socio and political meets. On Saturday, it hosted the Queer Lit Fest. Earlier, it is said to have hosted a meet on the Sterlite issue.
The owner resides in Poes Gardens.
Mylapore is home to dozens of spaces which host music and dance concerts, discourses, talks and community meets. It is not known if all of them possess such a licence or much of their events are held as private affairs to buck the law.
