Know It All In 30 Seconds
After allowing the functioning of liquor shops in the capital city, Delhi saw huge queues in front of these shops. An extra 70% will be levied on alcohol the next time you visit a liquor shop to enjoy a boozy quarantine.
Known as the ‘Special Corona Fee’, The Delhi Excise Act was amended to include this. A proposal to this effect was prepared by the Finance Department. About 150 government-run liquor shops have been allowed to open from 9 AM to 6:30 PM.
No social distancing was maintained by customers at these shops. A hike in prices might put a curb to overcrowding at liquor shops.
