Dry Days Alert! Delhi Bans Liquor Sale on Diwali, Dussehra


Delhi govt, headed by Arvind Kejriwal, has decided to declare Diwali and Dussehra as two dry days in October 2022. This is being done according to the new excise policy of the Delhi govt.

Earlier this year, the Kejriwal administration had decided to reduce the dry days in Delhi from 21 to 3. These dry days were observed on significant religious festivals and important days in Indian history.

However, the Delhi govt faced severe backlash due to their policy which prompted them to go back to the excise policy which existed before. Now, the number of dry days in India is back to 21 days in a year.

Effects of Dry Days in Delhi on Diwali and Dussehra

According to this, no liquor shop will be allowed to function on the occasion of Diwali and Dussehra. This means that no Delhiite will be able to purchase any kind of alcoholic drinks during these festivals. Therefore many have already piled up their stock at home to stop worrying about the hassle of securing a drink on Diwali and Dussehra.

Earlier in September, the Delhi govt has also abolished the license of many new private liquor shops by going back to the old excise policy. It had severely hampered the business of many liquor sellers. Also, the availability of drinks has taken a hit in Delhi.

Was going back to the old excise policy a good decision? Share with us your views on the dry days in Delhi in October 2022.
