Hotels, restaurants and clubs near highways in Punjab will now be able to serve alcohol within 500 metres of highways. The Punjab Assembly today amended the excise act which will bypass the Supreme Court order that hotels, pubs and restaurants near highways will have to take alcohol off the menu to keep roads safe. The Punjab Assembly took the decision to amend the excise act as the ban on serving liquor near highways has hit the hospitality and tourism industry in the state.
