Delhi government permits home delivery of liquor via website, app

The Delhi government has permitted the home delivery of liquor through online portals and mobile apps under the new excise policy. According to the Delhi Excise (Amendment) Rules, 2021, published in a gazette notification, holders of L-13 license will be allowed to deliver liquor at the doorstep of people.

The notification added that licensee shall make delivery of liquor at the residences only if order is received through mobile app or online web portal and no delivery shall be made to any hostel, office, and institution.

“Licence in Form L-13 for home delivery of Indian liquor and Foreign Liquor by ordering through mobile app or online web portal. The licensee shall make delivery of liquor at the residences only if order is received through mobile app or online web portal and no delivery shall be made to any hostel, office, and institution,” the notification said.

The rules also permit the holders of the necessary licences to serve liquor in open spaces such as terraces, the courtyards of clubs, bars and restaurants.

The decision to allow home delivery of liquor comes a day after the national capital started the unlocking process, after a month of lockdown. Liquor manufacturers had earlier asked the city government to allow home delivery of alcoholic beverages.
