The effect will be seen throughout Delhi.
According to people associated with the Department of Special Taxes, the effect of the closure of the government liquor stores will be visible throughout the city. The 850 private stores are unlikely to go live as of Wednesday. Because a lot of people don’t have licenses yet. NOC has not even been issued. Those who have been given permission to open a new store say that so far the brand has not even been registered by the government. In such a situation, which brand will be sold, it is also not decided. Therefore, it may take more than a month for the abundance of liquor in the liquor center.

There is a provision to open 27-27 liquor stores in 32 zones

Under the new excise policy, Delhi has been divided into 32 zones. In each zone, 27 liquor stores will be opened. Despite this, with the new excise policy, only 300-350 stores are expected to sell liquor from day one. Because even those who run liquor stores haven’t been able to understand the new policy correctly yet. It is also said that only about 350 stores have been provisionally licensed. Although the wholesaler license has been issued to 10 people and they have more than 200 brands of liquor. Nine lakh liters of liquor of different brands have been bought. It is also not decided how much will reach the new stores and how much will be sold.

The liquor is expected to be sold as soon as the transition period.
Private liquor stores closed on September 30. After this, during the transition period of a month and a half, the government stores operated as usual. These stores were closed Tuesday night, but due to a lack of stock in recent days, liquor fans were having to suffer.
The goal is also to provide walk-in experience.
The purpose of the government’s excise policy is to open liquor stores everywhere. Not only this, with walk-in installations to give consumers a new feel. The new liquor stores will be air-conditioned and equipped with closed-circuit television cameras. Crowds on the roads and trails must also be eliminated. However, it is also believed that with convenience, the price of liquor can also increase. However, the prices of alcoholic beverages will stabilize later. The opening hours of the stores have been set from 10 am to 10 pm.

Stores closed prematurely
Abkari’s new policy will be implemented from Wednesday and private contracts will be opened, but on Tuesday, people fond of liquor had to suffer. Shop blinds in many areas, including Laxmi Nagar, Gol Market, Mukherjee Nagar, Sarojini Nagar, were closed for the afternoon. Even in the store that opened, there was no stock of liquor. Traders even said the new excise policy is beyond comprehension. It is certain that there will be a shortage of liquor in the capital for the next few days.

Employment in the neighborhood was also affected

Generally, many stores are open for tasting according to the contract. The employment of thousands of people is linked to the management of an egg shop, a chaat-pakode shop, a gram-chebena shop. Due to the closure of old stores, the employment of these people appears to be ending.

Those who work in government stores are also in trouble.
There is also a crisis for government employees due to the closure of government stores. Now they have to involve the government in some other work. This includes many employees who are about to retire. In such a situation, if they give him another job, then it will be very difficult for him. So the government has not clarified to those employees what their new responsibility will be either. The government has not communicated the action plan to employees.

Mixed land use is also a problem
When a new contract is opened, there will also be a ground problem. Speaking of the Narela area, the land use will have to be changed to open a liquor center here. Only then can liquor centers be opened. This may take more than a month. Similarly, the DDA has not granted permission to open a liquor store on mixed-use land. If the liquor store opens on mixed land use under the new policy, then DDA may create disturbances under the rules and regulations.
