Maharashtra govt increases distance between new liquor shops to 1 km

The government also asked existent shops to shift if they want to, but they will have to follow the 1km rule.

Maharashtra government has passed a new resolution which increases the minimum distance between new liquor shops from 200 metres to 1 km. The government also asked existent shops to shift if they want to, but they will have to follow the 1km rule. 

The government's motive is to ensure that liquor shops are spread more evenly. This move will eventually discourage people from ordering liquor on phone or social media.

An excise official said, "If any shop is interested in changing location, they will have to take the shop to such an area where no other shop will be within a kilometre. The existing licences will not suffer, but in case they change their partners and decide to move the shop, such an arrangement of 1,000 meters will have to be followed. However, there is no such criterion for permit rooms or bars."

If the existent liquor stores are taking their shops 1km or more away from another shop, they will have to ensure that they remain at least 50 to 100m away from places like hospitals, educational institutions or religious structures.
