Unlock 4: Delhi govt allows bars to re-open from 9 Sept

Amid several relaxations by the Centre under its Unlock 4 plan to revive the economy, the Delhi government has approved the re-opening of bars and pubs in New Delhi after a 5-month-long suspension.  

“Bars shall be permitted outside containment zones in Delhi from Sept 9 to Sept 30 on a trial basis subject to strict compliance to COVID-19 SOPs, ” the notification mentioned.

Delhi Lieutenant General Anil Baijal has approved the order to open the bars and pubs from September 9 (next Wednesday).

After this permission, liquor can be served in the pub/bar/restaurant and hotel in Delhi.

However, these bars and pubs must follow standard operating procedures of the central government. 

The move comes as a part of unlocking 4 and many states like West Bengal, Goa, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu have already reopened bars and pubs, after keeping them closed for more than five months. The Centre government had allowed the reopening of bars, pubs, and restaurants under the Unlock 4 guidelines issued recently.
