New Delhi, December 8 

In a first, people can now buy seized liquor at 25 per cent cheaper prices than prevailing market rates as the Delhi government has issued an order to sell such liquor.

A government official said seized liquor would be sold only after testing its quality in affiliated laboratories.

Until now, seized liquor was destroyed after completing legal formalities in presence of government officials.

According to Standard Operating Procedure issued by the excise department, each of 4 corporations (government agencies) will designate at least two vends one for foreign liquor and one for IMFL through which the seized liquor can be sold. — PTI
