Dry days for elections in Delhi?

There is a great deal of concern on the Goa forum about restrictions being placed on alcohol purchase and consumption in the run up to and during the elections there in early March. In particular the public sale and consumption of alcohol is banned on particular days up to 6 March.

Are similar restrictions going to be in place in Delhi, please?

In Delhi, the only dry days are public holidays and voting day. No dry days around the voting day. If you really get stuck and are in Delhi, you can post a message on this forum and I'll ask someone to help you out

As far as I know, there will be no elections in Delhi in March, hence no question of dry days. Maybe some of the Delhi DE's can confirm this.

Even if there's a dry day, only sale of liquor at liquor shops is prohibited. You can still get it at bars and restaurants later in the evening

Then it's ok........a local person can still bring it down though but it's a good price for a non local person

Thanks. If there are no elections in Delhi then there will be no issue. Just wanted to be sure I could have a beer in my hotel in the evening.

That's good news; but apparently it will not be the case in Goa.

see the only reason they stop shops from selling booze is so that people don't buy in bulk and give it to the voters as bribe for votes.............as long as u can establish that you're a harmless creature looking for a beer, you will get it anywhere......having an indian friend by your side will be a huge plus, he will work it out for you if he's smart enough
