Court to hear petitions against non-renewal of liquor licences – ET Retail

Jaipur: A division bench of Rajasthan high court on Friday said that liquor licencees can individually approach the court before March 16 so that it can hear their cases against non-renewal of licences by the government.

In the excise policy of 2019-20, the government had said that the licences would be valid for two years after renewal. Instead, the excise department made a new policy for 2021-22 where a new auction system was introduced.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice Satish Kumar Sharma said that the bench will hear all the petitions and the verdict will be applicable to the petitioners only, not all the retail shops.

Nilesh Mewara, president of Raj Liquor Welfare Society, said,“They had made several applications knowing that the licences would be for two years. Application money is not refunded in the event of not getting licences. But people took the risk. By not allowing them the renewal facility as promised in the policy is an injustice.”
