New Delhi . The Delhi government has allowed home delivery of liquor through mobile apps and websites under the amended excise rules that will come into effect from Friday. According to the notification issued by the Finance Department of Delhi Government late on Thursday, “18 out of 21 amendments to the rules will come into force from Friday, June 11”.
Home delivery of liquor through mobile app and website has now been formally allowed from Friday, though the Excise Department is yet to issue L13 licenses.
Although the Delhi government has made a provision for online delivery of liquor in its new excise policy, no license has been issued so far.
A notification said that the licensee (L-13 holder) shall deliver liquor at the residences only on receipt of the order through the mobile app or online web portal, and no delivery shall be made in any hostel, office and institution .
Under the new excise policy, the legal drinking age in the city has been reduced from 25 to 21, which was approved by the Delhi cabinet in March this year.
It has also provided that people below 21 years of age will not be allowed inside restaurants where alcohol is served.
The Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government had on June 1 amended the excise rules through a notification to allow producers to extract draft beer in bottles or from micro-breweries.
The rules allow the required license holders to serve alcohol in open spaces such as terraces, courtyards of clubs, bars and restaurants, from where customers can obtain wine in bottles.
