After keeping on hold issuing of new bar licences in the city for almost a year, Delhi government is reported to have decided to issue licences for pending applications if other approvals are in order. Around 60 such applications have been pending with the Excise department since September last year, and will be taken up for approval after completing the due inspections.

The National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) which has been pursuing the matter with the government all these while has welcomed the decision of the government. “We welcome the recent news about resuming Issuance of Excise Licenses to Restaurants in Delhi. Over the past, almost one year, the restaurant industry has been suffering huge financial losses in view of the substantial investments made, high rentals, interest costs, running salaries and other operating costs of restaurants, especially for those in the business who had opened new restaurants and applied for the excise licenses,” said Riyaaz Amlani, President, NRAI in a statement.

 “We thank the authorities for providing the much awaited relief to the restaurant industry which will save many employees from losing their jobs, the industry and authorities from loss of revenue and will go a long way in promoting tourism and tourism related jobs,” he added.
