Latest from excise department
The excise department in Delhi has proposed to extend the existing liquor policy until March 31, 2024, to ensure continuity of supply. This move is likely to delay the formation of a new policy, as the previous one was scrapped due to alleged financial irregularities. The Delhi government is expected to approve the extension, which will be the third time this year. The new policy has yet to be framed, with investigations into the scrapped policy causing delays. Experts argue that Delhi needs a new policy for stability and to encourage investment and competition in the market.
