AAP Govt goes strict on bringing liquor from Haryana

Now getting over one litre liquor to Delhi from neighboring areas like Gurgaon and Faridabad to cut on few penny’s  may land you in jail as the state Government is stepping up efforts to catch hold of defaulters, reported PTI.

The move is intended to boost revenue by plugging losses as the AAP government loses out on tax which enriches the coffers of its neighbor Haryana.

The Delhi Government's Excise Department has formed teams to ascertain the prevalence of the practice by observing the liquor shops operating in Rohtak, Sonepat, Gurgaon and Faridabad bordering the national capital.

As per Section 33 of the existing Excise Act 2009, government says that one cannot take more than one litre to Delhi from other states.

Violators, in violation of this section can face imprisonment of up to three years and a fine of up to three lakh.

"Government has now decided to strictly implement this rule. There are thousands of people who live in Delhi, but go to Haryana's areas, especially Gurgaon and Faridabad, for works. Unaware of excise rules, most people can get over one litre liquor to Delhi from these areas which are illegal. The rule says that vehicle be it expensive indulged in transporting over one litre liquor will be confiscated and sold in auction. Such vehicles will not be returned to defaulters,” informed a senior official.

The official also said that excise department will launch an extensive drive within next week and for which, various teams have been formed.

Now, even department's officials are making an assessment of numbers of liquor shops in Faridabad, Sonipat and Gurgaon bordering Delhi to ascertain how many persons take Haryana liquor to Delhi.
