Liquor Price In Delhi: Private shopkeepers selling liquor in Delhi will now be able to sell liquor cheaply. The Excise Department has allowed private shops liquor sales to give a discount of up to 25 per cent on the maximum retail price (MRP). This has been said in a report by the news agency PTI.
In February, the Delhi government had banned the discount and sale scheme on liquor bottles. This decision was taken due to non-compliance with restrictions related to the prevention of Kovid-19 and unfair treatment in the market.
It is said in the order.
The Excise Commissioner of Delhi approved selling liquor at a discount. According to this order, private shops’ liquor sales in the National Capital Region can give up to a 25 per cent discount on MRP. Section 20 of the Delhi Excise Rules, 2010, will be strictly followed.
Shops licensed to sell liquor in Delhi will have to follow the set terms and conditions strictly, and in case of any violation, strict action will be taken against them under the Delhi Excise Act.
However, the order of the Excise Commissioner said, “Government reserves the right to withdraw the discount at any time given the public interest. There shall be no compulsion on the Government to continue with the decision of giving a discount.”
It was stopped because of this.
In February, as the outbreak of the Kovid epidemic continued, due to the discounts being given by private shops on the sale of liquor in Delhi and schemes like ‘buy one, get one free, there was a massive crowd outside the shops in many areas. Cases came to the fore. After this, the government had banned giving exemptions on the sale of liquor.
The Delhi government had implemented the new excise policy in November 2021 itself. Under this, licenses were issued to 849 retail outlets. Under this, licensed shops can give discounts and concessions on the MRP of liquor.
