Could be Goa as well, I think I've seen a similar sign there.

LOL Apparently that has sexual connotations (which were obviously lost on me haha).

From this site: the correct translation should be "Sitting and eating on the carpet is prohibited."

I was worried carpet was a local delicacy!

My Hindi friend let me know that it should say "Eating on the floor is prohibited".

I guess two centuries of British English classes haven't always helped the government caste.

Glad that there is a logical explanation.
