Youth 4 well being group demands for strict action against restaurant/bar owner for supplying alcohol to underage people...
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
