Liqour Plicy Seems to Change Soon

Thiruvananthapuram

The State government will name within a couple of days the person who will function as the single-member commission to study the scope for changes in the liquor policy, Excise Minister K. Babu has said. Mr. Babu said court verdicts had made it difficult for the government to implement the policy it had announced soon after coming to office. The policy was not to give bar licences to new three-star hotels, but it had given rise to court cases and the High Court of Kerala had ruled in favour of the appellants. The government moved the Supreme Court, but could not get the High Court verdict stayed.

Talking to presspersons here on Thursday, he said the government would urge the commission to submit its report within one-and-a-half months so that its recommendations could be appropriately incorporated in the revised excise policy proposed to be announced before the start of next financial year.
