Dr Mahesh Sharma, Union Minister for Tourism & Culture said that the government will try to find solution to the issue raised out of the Supreme Court verdict of March 31, 2017, by which hotels and restaurants within the 220 mtr radius of the highways are asked to stop serving liquor in their premises. After meeting the representatatives of the hoteliers in Delhi, Dr Sharma said that the government will try to work out some “middle level” solution to the problem as the order will impact India’s tourism prospects in a big way.

He said that it is a State subject and the government will consult with the States and evolve some solution to the problem by remaining within the framework of the Supreme Court order.  

Representatives of various associations of the tourism and hospitality industry had met in Delhi NCR yesterday and decided to build pressure on the political leadership on the issue as there will be loss of revenue to the states and loss of large scale employment in the hospitality industry in the wake of this order.
