Licence to open and keep open a notified place of public amusement
5.(1) the District Magistrate within the limits of his jurisdiction, may, on receipt of an application in the prescribed form, containing the prescribed particulars, and on payment of the prescribed fee, grant to any person a licence to open a notified place of public amusement and to keep the same open for such period as may be specified in the licence on such conditions as may be prescribed in this behalf.
(2) When under any law a license is required from any local authority for any place which is a notified place of public amusement under this Act, no license shall be granted under this Act in respect of such place until a license has been obtained from the local authority concerned.
(3) A license may be refused in any case in which the District Magistrate has reason to believe that the notified place of public amusement will be conducted in contravention of any of the conditions of a license which he is empowered to grant under this Act or is likely to lead to a breach of the peace, or to cause obstruction, annoyance or injury to residents in the locality.
