Delhi Liquor Policy

The policy was implemented by the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi from November 17, 2021. Under the new policy, 849 liquor vends were awarded to private companies through open bidding, to increase government revenues, better customer experience and end the liquor mafia’s influence and black marketing. The city was divided into 32 zones, each with a maximum of 27 vends. The new policy made the exit of city government from the liquor business.
