Besides Kerala, states like Punjab, Rajasthan and Karnataka are among others who have already de-notified their state highways partially.
In Kerala, around 70 three-star hotels and over 150 beer and wine parlours are likely to open up after the de-notification of the highways.
The Pinarayi Vijayan government had, in June, watered down the previous government's anti-liquor policy and allowed bars rated three-star and above to sell hard liquor.
According to government estimates, the shutdown of bars in the state caused a loss of around Rs 1,000 crore in the previous financial year. Kerala, before its partial prohibition policy, was ranked as the state with the highest liquor consumption.
However, the state government's decision to open bars has been challenged by the Anti-Liquor Collective in court.
