    Liquor Shops Closed Till Further Orders In Assam

    On April 13 the Assam Government announced that the liquor shops in the state would be opened for business with some restrictions

    All liquor shops in Assam have been shut once again in view of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown and as a measure to prevent the virus from further spreading.

    Assam Excise Minister Parimal Suklabaidya wishing the people on Bihu announced that the liquor shops in the state will be shut from Thursday onwards.

    He appealed the people to abide by the “words” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to observe lockdown in a full sense by staying indoors and maintaining social distancing.

    He has also announced that in view of the Consolidated Revised Guidelines and National Directives issued by the Central Government for COVID-19 management as per Ministry of Home Affairs(MHA) all liquor shops, wholesale warehouses, bottling plants, distilleries and breweries in the state shall remain closed with immediate effect and until further orders.

    On April 13th, 2020 the Assam Government announced that the liquor shops in the state would be opened for business with some restrictions. The move by the government was both welcomed and criticized as it was seen that several people had moved on to the streets on their vehicles to buy liquor despite the administration asking them to not use vehicles. Some wine shops witness a massive crowd defying all forms of social distancing.
