Private shopkeepers are selling liquor at huge discounts. In such a situation, everyone is buying as much alcohol as they can. Videos from many places are becoming increasingly viral on social media.
Why is this happening?
The Kejriwal government has announced to withdraw its new excise policy. This law was brought on 17 November. After this decision, it has become clear that liquor will be sold in Delhi under the old excise policy. The government had claimed that it would be of great benefit to the Delhi government, with the government anticipating that the decision would increase revenue. In the last several months, more than 200 shops have been closed in Delhi. Now again such a situation has arisen that the shops which are left will also be closed. Because of this, liquor is being available in Delhi at a very low price. A liquor businessman from Delhi told that what the government wants to do is not clear yet. The government was first forced to give a discount on liquor, due to which there was a loss of crores of rupees. Now again order has been given to give exemption on alcohol. Due to this loss, many brands in Delhi have stopped making liquor. Overall, the Delhi government is not able to clarify what will be the rules for private shopkeepers.

But after August 1, they will stop getting such cheap liquor. License of private shopkeepers of Delhi will be cancelled. And according to the MRP, liquor will be sold only at government shops.
