Gurgaon's Cyber Hub & More Might Go Dry Following SC Liquor Ban

Posted at February 8th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

Gurgaon’s Cyber Hub has been one of the most popular chilling spots since it’s opening and is continuously growing with new outlets and chains opening up all the time. The upscale zone is near the Delhi – Gurgaon expressway and therein lies the problem. The Supreme Court has mandated that sale of liquor within 500 metres of national and state highways will not be allowed post April 1st. 34 pubs and bars in Cyber Hub will have to go dry if this law is implemented. Another 109 pubs and 43 liquor vendors would lose their licences like hotels located along the expressway and even some eateries in Sector 29 and along Sohna Road.

The closure of the 43 liquor vends could result in a loss of Rs 70.81 crore in revenue per year. “We will comply with the orders of the Supreme Court. We have conducted a survey and will shortly submit the report to the headquarters,” said Aruna Singh, deputy excise and taxation commissioner, Gurgaon.

“Restaurants are being targeted unjustifiably. A restaurant is the safest place for an individual to drink and at least more than three-and-a-half lakh employees face the risk of losing jobs,” said Arvind Kumar, general manager, The Wine Company.

“Due to a lack of description in the ruling, all food and beverages outlets have come under the scanner. Let’s hope that the Supreme Court will explain this and give us a realistic guideline of the ruling,” Goumtesh Singh, owner, Raasta Cafe.
