Kerala likely to extend working hours of liquor outlets
Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government is planning to extend the working hours of liquor outlets by 2 hours in the state.
It is learned that the government is considering the proposal. Meanwhile, an official order on the extension of the working hours is yet to be issued.
The proposal was moved in view of the rush at liquor outlets during Onam season.
Earlier this week, BEVCO proposed to extend the working hours. At present, BEVCO outlets are working from 9 am to 5 pm. If the government grants permission to extend the working hours, the outlets will function from 9 am to 7 pm.
