The Maharashtra state government allowed the Home delivery from Friday, 15th May. Government Resolution (GR) issued by the govt Excise department, said that the Maharashtra liquor Home delivery is going to take place from 10.00 AM on 15th May 2020, Friday. To avoid the gathering outside the liquor shops during the lockdown period, state govt announced this on Tuesday.
Under the new order from state Govt “The home delivery of liquor will commence from Friday across the state, where the shops are already opened in the non-containment zones. One shop owner cannot appoint more than 10 delivery persons and one delivery person cannot carry more than 24 bottles of permitted liquor in one time.”
The government is trying to give all necessary relaxations to the people hence the new order is released on Wednesday to provide some relief to consumers, allowing the Home Liquor Delivery. It is also made clear by the state government that the online Maharashtra Liquor Home delivery is totally an unwritten contract between the buyer and the seller, hence the state will not take any part if any kind of dispute generates between them.
Home delivery order is applicable in all other district of the state excluding 10 districts which are Mumbai, Nagpur and districts in Marathwada.
