Youth 4 well being group demands for strict action against a liquor licensee (restaurant/bar owner/seller) for supplying alcohol to underage people... the group further added that young people are victims of marketing strategies of alcohol industry and should be protected...
The next time you offer an underage friend or relative a drink at a restro-bar, be prepared to face a pep talk from excise department officials.

The Delhi government’s excise department has decided to counsel and take written undertakings from customers in pubs and restro-bars who are caught sharing or ordering liquor for friends/relatives under 25 years in age.

Sources in the department said teams would conduct surprise checks at restro-bars across the city. “People often come in to lounge bars, order drinks and pass it on to their underage friends or relatives. We have decided to go have a chat with anyone doing so and ask them to give a written undertaking that they won’t offer liquor to an underage person again,” an official said.

At present, the Delhi’s excise law lays down strict action against a liquor licensee (restaurant/bar owner/seller) for supplying alcohol to underage people. But, it does not prescribe any action for a third party or a person caught violating the rule http://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi-news/offering-liquor-to-underage-friends-at-bar-get-ready-for-a-counselling-session/story-CSAklIOqBciSOQf6LahmRN.html
