Delhi: Rules allowing home delivery of liquor come into force

The rules of home delivery of liquor have come into force in Delhi from today. After the decrease in cases in the second wave of Coronavirus Pandemic, the process of unlocking has started in Delhi. In such a situation, the state government has also started taking forward the process of home delivery of liquor.

Liquor sellers will be able to apply for license from today

From today, sellers of liquor in Delhi will be able to apply for home delivery license. On June 1, the Delhi government announced that home delivery of liquor would be done through mobile app and website, although the 2010 Excise Policy also had a provision for home delivery of liquor, but this could only be done through fax or e-mail.

However, due to the impracticality of the rules, there were no takers for the L-13 licence. Till date, the government has not issued any L-13 licence.

According to an official notification issued on Thursday, the Delhi finance department has said most of the amendments, including that of Rule 66 of the Delhi Excise Rules, will come into effect from June 10.

However, whether or not home delivery of liquor finally begins in Delhi still depends on the number of applications for L-13 licences and the government’s willingness to clear those.

Alcohol manufacturers had requested the Delhi government to allow home delivery of liquor about a month back since people gathered at wine shops to purchase liquor in advance. Meanwhile, liquor shops have been operating on an odd-even basis in the national capital since June 7 (Monday) as a part of the gradual Unlock process.
