Sundays no longer 'Dry'

We are very pleased to see that following the public outcry and lobbying by the tourist industry the Kerala Government have now made the sensible decision to review the new alcohol rules.  Sundays are no longer ‘dry days’ and all 4 star as well as 5 star hotels can have a full licence if they want it.  There is another hearing on 15 January 2015 which will decide on the fate of 3 star hotels.  In the meantime any 3 star hotels that already have a full licence can continue to sell spirits up to 15 January and can sell beer and wine irrespective of the court ruling.  The decision was made based on the concerns for the large number of bar workers who lost their jobs (418 bars across the state were closed) and the fact that the sale of alcohol increased by 60% on Saturdays prior to ‘dry’ Sundays!
