​Excise Commissioner gives clearance to 30 liquor outlets in Gurugram

According to officials at the excise office in Gurugram, the commissioner’s office in Chandigarh cleared 30 outlets.

Liquor shops in Sector 29 of Gurugram have started serving liquor, after getting clearance from the excise commissioner in Chandigarh.

Around 16 bars and restaurants had shut completely or stopped serving alcohol in Sector 19 after the Supreme Court ordered a ban on sale of liquor within 500 metres of state and national highways.

Ten outlets in Ambience Mall along with The Westin, Crowne Plaza and two restaurants also got the state excise department’s nod to serve liquor, sources said.

According to officials at the excise office in Gurugram, the commissioner’s office in Chandigarh cleared 30 outlets. Deputy commissioner Hardeep Singh-led district-level committee, which includes officials of excise department, PWD, NHAI, DTCP, Gurgaon police and Huda, had given its approval to 38 outlets in Sector 29, Ambience Mall, Crowne Plaza, Rajiv Chowk and Sohna Road at a meeting held on April 21.

A senior excise official said, "The clearance has come from the head office in Chandigarh. We will have some more processes to follow now. But yes, since they have got the approval, these outlets can start serving liquor now."

Sources said the excise department is expected to take a final decision on granting approval to outlets in Cyber Hub within a week.

Inderjit Banga, Co-owner of Prankster at Sector 29, said, "The move will definitely revive the night life in Gurugram. There is immense joy and excitement everywhere, especially among our employees who have got jobs back."

Ashwin Chaudhary, who runs multiple outlets in Cyber Hub and Sector 29, said, "I am extremely happy for my employees who have been working with me for six years. Some of them are away at their villages and will have to be called back."
