The Delhi government sanctioned a new excise policy on March 22, 2021, to lower the legal drinking age from 25 to 21.
The policy was suggested after a government committee made the decision and reduced the number of dry days to three per year.
The timings of bars in restaurants and clubs may be increased from 1 am to 3 am with an additional fee payment. Sisodia stated that about 2,000 illegal liquor outlets in Delhi are run from houses and godowns. The new policy was formulated to put an end to it.
