Confused about how to buy alcohol in Maharashtra?

The Maharashtra government is now allowing alcohol home delivery across the states, except in containment zones.

While this decision of the State government might make you mighty happy, it is majorly being done so that there can be some money generated via the excise duty levied on alcoholic beverages; the need of the hour for cash-strapped states. Earlier, wine shops had been allowed to open for a brief day but when people broke all norms of social distancing; this liberty was taken away too. Now, Maharashtra government has approved alcohol home delivery services to start so that there is no breaking of social distancing rules while also bringing in a steady cash flow.

However, in order to get alcohol delivered to your home, it is required that you buy an alcohol permit.

The government also ordered that the shop owners not to charge over and above the maximum price printed on the bottle. 


The online sale of liquor is an unwritten contract between the buyer and the seller, hence the state will not be a party to any possible dispute between them. “Despite the online sale, the liquor shops will have to adhere to the laid-down norms of physical distancing and sanitisation of its staff.
