SC upholds Kerala liquor ban, bars to operate only in 5-star hotels

New Delhi, Dec 29: The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Kerala's new liquor policy restricting sale and consumption of liquor at bars in five star hotels only.

An apex court bench comprising Justice Vikramjit Sen and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh in their judgement pronounced on Tuesday dismissed the petitions challenging the Kerala liquor policy while upholding the Kerala High Court's earlier judgement sustaining the liquor policy.

The liquor policy, upheld by the apex court, allows service of liquor at bars in five star hotels only.

Under the policy, the sale and consumption of liquor at the bars in other hotels is prohibited. The judgment means that many of the restaurants and bars in the state cannot sell liquor. Many of them have converted to beer and wine parlours after the state government announced the new policy.
