Liquor vends at IGI Airport to reopen soon

The Delhi government is set to reopen liquor vends at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport for serving domestic flyers after about two years of obstruction due to scrapping of its excise policy for 2021–22. As per the reports, the Delhi government's agency, Delhi Consumers' Cooperative Wholesale Store Ltd.  (DCCWS) is expected to open its liquor shop at T3 terminal's arrival section by July.

Earlier, the Kejriwal government scrapped the excise policy for the 2021–22 fiscal after Delhi's Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena recommended a CBI probe into the alleged irregularities in its formulation and implementation in 2022.

Thereafter the retail liquor sale in the city was handed over to the four agencies of the Delhi government, which was handled by private entrepreneurs during the scrapped excise policy's tenure.
