Cheers! People of Delhi can now apply online for setting up bars for social get-togethers
Obtaining licences for serving liquor during social get-togethers has just become easier for Delhiites as the Delhi police has introduced an online registration process where applicants after filling verification forms can get permission in less than 24 hours.

Up till now, the applicants had to spend the whole day at the licence office for it.

Police Commissioner launched the system on Friday, which has been designed, developed and implemented after consulting all stakeholders and IT professionals.

Delhi Police chief spokesperson Dependra Pathak said, "Earlier, a person seeking a casual performance licence had to download a form and approach the office of the additional CP (licensing), who scrutinised the application, waited for the police to conduct a manual verification and granted the licence after 2-3 days.The idea is to make the process easier and accessible to applicants at home. The status can also be checked online."

The Delhi police receive over 5000 applications seeking licences for serving liquor during the winter season. Once received, the application is forwarded to the concerned district and the area police station. The licence is approved after the beat officer visits the place for verification.

The new system links all the 13 districts and six traffic ranges of Delhi police which will diminish the need for any physical interference, thereby reducing corruption.
