Home delivery of liquor in Mumbai allowed from today
Mumbai : Liquor in Mumbai can be home delivered from today but not in the containment zones, BMC announced on Friday.
A day after the Maharashtra government allowed online delivery platforms Swiggy and Zomato to deliver liquor in the state except Mumbai, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said barring containment zones - areas sealed off after a large number of virus cases.
Only those with permits will be allowed to sell liquor in Mumbai, new BMC chief Iqbal Singh Chahal said in an order on Friday.
No counter sale of liquor will be allowed in Mumbai. The shops can use e-commerce platforms for home-delivery of alcohol.
The country's financial capital has over 25,000 COVID-19 cases and 882 have died. Maharashtra has over 44,000 virus cases, with more than 1,500 deaths.
