Shops selling non-essentials including liquor operational in Bandra, Khar, Juhu & Santacruz

5 non-essential shops can be operative in each lane.

Amidst the corona pandemic, Maharashtra continues to be the worst hit state in India with almost 13,000 cases and on Sunday itself, 678 new patients were reported by the state health officials. But as the third phase of the lockdown began on May 4, the Maharashtra Government has allowed standalone shops selling non-essential items including liquor stores to operate in certain areas in Mumbai including Juhu, Bandra, Khar and Santacruz.

Lockdown 3.0: Lack of clarity on liquor shops in Mumbai - mumbai ...

Only 5 stores selling non-essential items and wine or liquor will be operative in a single lane to avoid any sort of crowding. But the sale of liquor will not be allowed in malls, restaurants and the containment areas. According to the official orders, only 5 people will be allowed in a shop at one time. Retail wine shops will close at 6 PM and wholesalers will have to shut down their operations at 5 PM.

In adherence to the Disaster Management Act, administrations of Solapur, Aurangabad, Jalna, Buldhana and Amravati districts have decided to keep liquor shops shut. Although several liquor manufacturing and bottling factories located in Aurangabad have been given permissions to resume production, there will be no sales in the district itself.

This piece of order by the Maha Government has prompted people to overcrowd liquor shops in huge numbers for hours and this has also led to the flouting of rules of social distancing by the citizens.
