Now, get your liquor permits at local wine shops
The department has decided to hand out 50,000 one-day permits, which are valid for a day and cost Rs 2 for consuming country liquor and Rs 5 for foreign liquor, to 250 wine outlets in Pune district so that customers can get the permits at the outlets.
People are often reluctant to visit the excise office to procure the permits.
“Although we issue 200-300 one-day liquor permits every day, we thought it better to have these permits at wine shops so that it would make it easy for those who want them. The cost of one-day permit is Rs 2 for country liquor and Rs 5 for foreign liquor. We have told wine shop owners to give these permits to consumers when they buy liquor,’’ said superintendent of excise (Pune district) AB Chaskar.
