(G.N.S) Dt. 22

New Delhi

Delhi government has reduced the drinking age in Delhi to 21 years which was earlier at 25 years and was prompted a large number of customers to move to NCR towns for liquor. The move is likely to give a new lease of life to the liquor and associated industries.

It is one of the many reforms under Delhi’s new excise policy approved by the Arvind Kejriwal cabinet on Monday, said deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia at a press conference. The new policy will come into effect after it is notified in a couple of days.
