Madras High Court allows sale of liquor, shops ordered to record name, address and Aadhar Card Number of the buyer

The Court decreed that an individual could only purchase alcohol twice a week with a minimum gap of three days in between.

Liquor Shops in Tamil Nadu are set to reopen after the Madras High Court refused to stay their reopening. While hearing a PIL filed by B Ramkumar Adityan, the Court observed that it was a policy matter and hence, “We are of the opinion that we cannot totally prohibit the re-opening of the TASMAC shops for sale of Liqours, including Beer, Wine etc. in the State.” It was also ordered that the name, address and Aadhar Card number of the buyer be recorded in the bill.

The Court said that “if any sale is found to be made in violation of this direction and such fact is brought to the notice of this court, that shop in question will be immediately closed and will not be allowed to be reopened, except by the specific orders of the Court.” In addition to that, the timing of the shops has been limited to 10 am-5 pm and other directions such as avoiding bulk sales, maintenance of a token system and the installation of a public address system have also been issued.

The Madras High Court said further, “The balance of revival of economic activity and management of COVID related disease has to be maintained by the State Authorities and it is not within the domain of the Court to interfere with the same.” Nevertheless, the Court proceeded to issue strict guidelines regarding the sale of alcohol.

The Court decreed that an individual could only purchase alcohol twice a week with a minimum gap of three days in between. Furthermore, those paying online could purchase two bottles of 750 ml alcohol at a time while those paying through cash could purchase only one. The Madras High Court also mandated that payment be made through approved E-payment applications like RuPay, Bhim, Google Pay etc. and cash payment is to be made only when such facilities are not available.

The Madras High Court ordered that the time between 10 am-1 pm will be reserved for those above 50 years of age. Those between 40-50 years of age can by alcohol between 1 pm-3 pm and those under 40 will buy alcohol between 3 pm-5 pm. Action will be taken if anyone is found violating the guidelines issued by the Court.
