Over 250 Crore Of Alcohol Sold In Karnataka In A Day As Liquor Stores Begin To Open Up

After almost 45 days of a country-wide lockdown and a complete prohibition on alcohol due to CoVid19, India decided to loosen some of the restrictions across zones as the country looks to scramble back to opening up. The first ostentatious beneficiaries of the partial relaxation were liquor stores as the govt. let individual states decide their status provided all social distancing norms were followed. It wasn’t long before that queues – even as long as kilometre – formed outside the alcohol stores that were open.
