The Maharashtra government has decided to allow online sale and home delivery of alcohol.

The Maharashtra government has decided to allow online sale and home delivery of alcohol. The move – prompted by rising instances of drunken driving – will also shore up revenues, which have come under strain following the closure of liquor shops located near highways and a reduction in the prices of petrol and diesel earlier this month. To ensure the services are not misused, sellers will ask for buyers’ details including their Aadhaar numbers and the liquor bottles would be geo-tagged. Earlier, reports said the state government backtracked on the move in wake of stiff opposition from social activists.
