The food and beverages industry stands to lose half its yearly revenue as a result of the ban on sale of liquor along state and national highways.
The spirit of the judgment is correct...but there are some fundamental points, like a liquor vend is about 300*500 square feet. A shop can be relocated. But how do you relocate a hotel and restaurants there are millions of dollars invested in it.
Central and states governments will lose around Rs 1 lakh crore of revenue from the sale of licences, luxury tax, sales tax, among others.
Delhi's most iconic Cyber Hub has already received SC's judgment of not serving liquor post 1st of April affecting more than 50 restaurants. The future of other restaurant dominated markets like Sector 29 and Sohna road is in bleak.
Last month, North Delhi Municipal Corporation(NDMC) sealed all the terraces in CP affecting more than 30 restaurants. The total loss of revenue was more than 30 crore. NDMC till date, hasn't given any clarity on the same and restaurants continue to remain in a fix.
Delhi's apex Restauranter Priyank Sukhija quotes "Last month had to painfully say goodbye to 85 staff members because of the sealing of rooftops in CP which the NDMC has no consideration for ... ruining the most epic hub in the country !
This month it would be more than 100 after the 500 metre ban.
Thousands more are going to loose their job. This is india not shining any more"
