Soon bars in Delhi may be open until 3 pm and wine may be served. The Delhi government may issue an order in this regard soon. Bars are allowed to remain open till 3 pm in Haryana’s Gurgaon and Faridabad’s NCR cities. However, in Noida and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, the bar is open till 1 am. There are about 550 independent restaurants in Delhi that serve Indian and foreign wines after obtaining L-17 licenses from the Excise Department.

According to reports, a formal order is likely to be issued soon. Most pubs and restaurants are currently allowed to remain open until 1pm, with a few exceptions. The restaurant industry has been suffering from business losses due to COVID epidemics for the past two years. In such a situation, the government is now striving for revenue.

The government is co-ordinating with the Delhi Police and other agencies for the safe implementation of the new times. The bar in the restaurant is now allowed to operate until 1 p.m., a government official said. If the time is extended to 3 p.m., the department will work with other agencies, including the excise police. The excise policy, which came into force in November 2021, recommended that the bar’s operating hours be brought on par with neighboring cities.

What is an L-16 license?

Hotel and motel restaurants, numbering close to 150, are already allowed to serve wine 24 hours a day. Such restaurants are licensed L-16 by the Excise Department. Kabir Suri, president of the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), said the hospitality sector paid a heavy license fee but suffered losses as no change was made in the times as per the excise policy 2021-22. Welcoming the move, Suri said, “We have approached the Delhi government with a demand that the opening hours of the bar proposed in the policy be extended to 3 pm.”

This is a new excise policy.

Excise policy calls for creating a conducive environment and improving conditions for smooth business. The policy states that many of the conditions related to excise duty in hotels, clubs and restaurants need to be harmonized with current business and social perspectives.
