After approval from NMC authorising home delivery of liquor, Nagpur wine shop owners are now awaiting the approval from District Collector Ravindra Thakare to resume operations and begin sales.

City businessman Girish Dewani, who’s involved in manufacture and sale of liquor, told Nation Next, “We cannot start delivery until we receive orders from collector. We are expecting that the orders will be issued later today and we should be able to begin sales from May 15.
Rajesh Chaurasia, owner of PVK wine shop at Bajaj Nagar, told Nation Next: “We cannot open our shops until we receive an order from the district collector. Also, it is not clear as to how we can conduct online sales. How will the customer contact us We are expecting that when the orders to reopen our establishments are issued, guidelines as to how to conduct online delivery of liquor are also specified.”
