SC clarifies notice on liquor ban, hotels within municipal limits get respite

The Supreme Court directive that no liquor shop shall be visible and directly accessible from the highways nor it should be situated within 500 metres of the outer edge of the national or state highway or of the service lane, created chaos in the hospitality industry. While lakhs of people lost their jobs, the MICE business impacted a great deal in the country. The Supreme Court, however, on Wednesday, clarified that the ban on sale of alcohol within 500 meters of state and national highways does not apply within city limits (municipal limits), brought respite to the hospitality industry.
