As the government has allowed the sale of liquor in green ,orange and red zone ,but people are not following social distancing norms . District excise officer Sunil Bhati said that licence holders should ensure that barricading is being done thoroughly outside the liquor outlets to maintain social distancing and that the customers stand in the circles marked outside the shop at a distance of 1.5 metre each.
Now,in Jaipur liquor will be sold in Jaipur on the condition that social distancing is thoroughly maintained and coupons will be given to customers at the outlets where there is a long queue, said district excise officers here on Monday.
Customers can then turn up at the outlet depending on the time slot being allowed through the coupon numbers, said officials.
On Monday, many customers queued up at the liquor shops as the state excise department announced to open the liquor and wine shops in all three zones (red, green and orange – except the containment and curfew zones) in the state in lockdown 3.0.
Social distancing went for the toss as customers flouted all norms waiting for their turns outside the liquor shops. Eventually, the excise department came up with fresh orders asking the licence holders to open shops on condition that social distancing is followed thoroughly.
