The Delhi government has allowed home delivery of liquor under the amended excise rules.
The Delhi Excise (Amendment) Rules, 2021, in a gazette notification on Monday, allowed licence holders to deliver liquor booked through an app or a website at the doorstep of the customer.
“Licence in Form L-13 for home delivery of Indian liquor and Foreign Liquor by ordering through mobile app or online web portal,” it read.
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.
However, it will not allow liquor stores across the city to carry out home delivery of liquor immediately.
Only those traders in possession of the L-13 license will be allowed to carry out home delivery of liquor booked via mobile apps or portals developed for this purpose.
According to the previous rules, home delivery was not explicitly barred, but holders of L-13 license were allowed to carry out such delivery “at the residences only if order is received through e-mail or by Fax (not on telephone)”. But home delivery of liquor eluded the capital.
