Delhi govt to soon allow city bars to stay open till 3 am

The restaurant industry who has been battling loss of business over the past two years owing to covid-19 pandemic, is seeing the new excise policy by the Kejriwal-led AAP govt as a fresh lease of life after the Delhi govt decided to allow bars and restaurants to serve liquor till 3 a.m.

According to reports, a formal order is likely to be issued soon and the government is coordinating with Delhi Police and other agencies for the safe implementation of the new timings. Most pubs and restaurants, barring some exceptions, are currently allowed to stay open till 1 am.

The government has issued necessary directions to the Excise department and an order is likely to be issued soon in accordance with the Excise Policy 2021-22, said a senior government officer.

“Bars at restaurants are now allowed to operate till 1 AM. The Excise department will work with other agencies, including police, if the timing is extended till 3 AM,” he said.

The Excise Policy that came into force from November 2021 recommended that the timings of operation of bars may be brought at par with neighbouring cities.

In the NCR towns of Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana, bars are allowed to open till 3 AM. However, in Noida and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, bars are open till 1 AM.
