Carrying Sealed alcohol bottles may cause problems on Delhi Metro to Noida, Warn Excise Authorities

On Saturday, July 1, excise authorities (an agency responsible for collecting taxes on imported and exported goods) warned that the travellers from Delhi Metro carrying sealed spirits bottles into Noida, Uttar Pradesh, may get into trouble.


A day ago, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) declared that travellers might bring up to two sealed bottles of alcohol onto its network.


The metro train network of DMRC extends outside of Delhi to surrounding cities like Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana and Noida and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.


The excise regulations in Uttar Pradesh prohibit the import of alcohol from outside the state due to the potential revenue loss.

According to officials, the existing regulation only enables the entry of one unopened bottle from neighbouring Delhi or Haryana by road or metro.


Subodh Srivastava, the Noida District Excise Officer, told PTI that despite the Delhi Metro allowing passengers to carry two sealed containers of alcohol, UP excise regulations will still be in effect in the UP's borders.


The inspector also stated that the excise agency would increase its patrols of metro stations and prosecute anyone in possession of sealed spirits bottles from outside of Uttar Pradesh.To prevent bothering passengers, Srivastava added, "We will also try to educate the public about the excise rules in UP."


In general, Haryana and Delhi have less expensive alcohol than Uttar Pradesh. People transporting sealed spirits bottles from Delhi to Noida by road have been detained on multiple occasions in the past.


According to a representative, in such cases, the Excise Act's Section 63, which imposes non-bailable penalties for illegal import, export, transit, manufacturing, possession, and sale, is used to prosecute offenders.


Alcohol carrying was previously only permitted on the Airport Express Line and is now permitted throughout the entire Delhi Metro system as part of a strategy to promote consistency, the DMRC said on Friday.


A group of representatives from the CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) and the DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) reportedly evaluated the permitted objects to be carried in trains.


However, the metro administrator has cautioned that anyone detected behaving indecently while intoxicated would face appropriate legal action and has asked commuters to maintain basic decorum while commuting.
