State-run agencies have started applying for liquor permits so that they can open retail stores by September 1 as the Delhi government reverts to its old system till a new excise policy is put into place.

“The applications for L-6 vends are being accepted and will be screened,” an official said, without specifying the number of applications the excise department has received. L-6 is a licence given to a retail store run by a government corporation in Delhi.
