ALCOHOL LAWS IN INDIA 

ALCOHOL LAWS IN INDIA – Usually we says that no person shall be allowed to serve liquor before he turns 25 but in real, the question arises? Are we following this , the answer is NO .

We have set the age limit , but no liquor seller following this, even in some restaurants and bar, people of below 18 or 15 age are having the alcohol, you know why because the sellers are not afraid or very much aware of the alcohol laws, they don’t have fear of any punishment which lies under alcohol laws.

 

If the sellers are not very well aware of it, then how we can blame the consumers of below the set age from having the same, before we call the consumers that they are abolishing the alcohol laws, we first blame the sellers for that.

Almost daily we came across the headline of hearing about the car accidents by youth under the influence of liquor.

CONCLUSION

The factor that trigger them is the easy availability , weak implementation of laws etc.
