Delhi Govt Imposes 70% ‘Special Corona Fee’ On Liquor, Twitter Responds With Memes

The government recently permitted the opening of standalone liquor shops in the green, orange, and red zones. We saw how people on the internet broke into a celebration and liquor shop owners showered customers with flowers after they were back in business after 40 long days!

However, the Delhi government had decided to impose a 70% ‘Special Corona Fee’ on liquor sales in the national capital, reports News18.

“70% of the maximum retail price (will be levied) on all categories of liquor sold through retail licensees for consumption,” Delhi government’s Finance Department said.

Therefore, if a bottle of liquor were to cost Rs 1,000, the customer would end up paying Rs 1,700 after tax. Yes, quite the bummer.
