New Delhi: There is great news for the liquor drinkers in Delhi. The Delhi government, under its new excise policy, has reduced the number of Prohibition Days (Dry Days) to just three from 21 days last year. This information came from an official order issued on Monday. However, the order also states that the ban on sale of liquor on ‘dry days’ will not be applicable in hotels with L-15 license.

Liquor shops will now remain closed in Delhi for only 3 days. This decision has been taken under the new excise policy of the Delhi government. On Monday, the Delhi government was informed about this new excise policy. Earlier there were a total of 21 dry days in Delhi. The sale of liquor was prohibited in Delhi during all these 21 dry days.

According to the new excise policy made by the Delhi government, now liquor shops in Delhi will remain closed only on Independence Day i.e. 15 August, Republic Day i.e. 26 January and Gandhi Jayanti i.e. on 2 October. That is, except for 26 January, 15 August and 2 October in Delhi, liquor shops will remain open for the rest of the year.

According to this amendment made by the Excise Department, the sale of liquor in hotels with L-15 license will not be prohibited on all three ‘dry days’ decided. Significantly, earlier there were 21 dry days in Delhi. These included Makar Sankranti, Republic Day, 30 January, the martyr day of Mahatma Gandhi, Guru Ravidas Jayanti, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Jayanti, Swami Dayanand Saraswati Jayanti, Mahashivratri, Holi Dr Ambedkar Jayanti, and Mahavir Jayanti, Dussehra etc.

There was a provision to keep liquor shops closed on many other occasions including religious festivals, birthdays of religious and social figures. However, the Delhi Government can modify it from time to time. The Delhi government can increase or decrease the number of dry days through new amendments and it will be binding on all liquor vendors to follow these rules of the government.

Significantly, different state governments across the country decide the excise policy for the state according to their own. In most states of the country, the sale of liquor remains prohibited on major festivals and national holidays. According to the religious, cultural and national festivals in different states, the number of dry days that prohibit the sale of alcohol is more or less.

Dry days are declared by the Excise Department prohibiting the sale of liquor. Liquor shops across the state remain closed on dry days declared by the Excise Department and selling or consuming liquor is prohibited. For doing so, action is taken under the Excise Act.

Under similar rules, the Delhi government has prepared a new excise policy. Under the new excise policy, the allocation of liquor shops in each ward of Delhi has been done in a new way. Where another Delhi government says that with this the allocation and management of liquor shops is being improved. At the same time, the opposition has been continuously alleging that the Delhi government’s new excise policy is going to promote alcohol in the capital. This has a bad effect on the youth.
