Maharashtra starts e-token system for liquor sale; mulls home delivery of alcohol


The Maharashtra government has announced that it will start an online token or e-token system on a pilot basis for the sale of liquor in Nashik and Pune from Sunday to avoid crowding at shops. The move comes after tipplers gathered in large numbers outside liquor shops at several places in the state last week, defying the physical distancing norms to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Under the new system, a person can get a token by registering on the state excise departments portal and then go to the shop to buy liquor, a senior department official said on Monday.
