Barbers to be registered in Punjab under Hepatitis act
LAHORE – Primary and Secondary Healthcare Department Punjab has decided to register all barbers across the province under the Punjab Hepatitis Act.
Reports in local media cited that barbers across Punjab will have to register their shops with the health department, which will issue temporary licenses after inspection that will be valid for a period of three months.
Meanwhile, the All Pakistan Hairdressers and Beauticians Association assured full support to the initiative. Barbers expressed concern toward harassment in the guise of inspection. It is a commendable decision of the incumbent government only if the inspection staff will not harass the poor barbers.
