Carrying two sealed liquor bottles was earlier allowed in the Bengaluru metro, however, in 2019 it was discontinued after people were witnessed consuming it at metro stations.

Recently, two sealed bottles of alcohol per person was permitted to be carried inside Delhi Metro, according to revised norms.

However, drinking of alcohol inside metro premises is still strictly prohibited, officials said.

Carrying of alcohol was banned in the Delhi Metro till recent except on the Airport Express Line, the DMRC said in a statement in response to a query.
