Bar licence for 30 more hotels

Thirty more three star hotels would have to be provided with bar licences, said K. Babu, Minister for Excise, here today. He was speaking at a meeting organised by the KCBC Madyavirudha samithi. The Minister hastened to add that it was to comply with High Court directives that the government is forced to issue bar licences. He said the government policy was not to look forward to the revenue from sale of liquor in the State.
