Every alcohol shop in the city — whether in a five-star lodging, an eatery or a distribute — is staring at closure from April 1, when the December judgment of the Supreme Court on conclusion of alcohol shops on state interstates and national highways takes effect.
The reason. On record, every single real street in the city are state interstates and fall inside the ambit of the judgment.
The street categorisation was done around 20 years so that the UT organization could keep up these streets, with the city partnership shy of assets at the time.
Starting today then, aside from the one national interstate that goes through the city, every single significant street are state thruways.
"It was chosen to announce every single real street as state thruways so that their support should be possible by UT's designing office, rather than the MC," an authority said.
After some time, the support passed on to the MC, yet the streets are still, formally, state parkways.
Presently, the UT organization has set up a four-part panel to propose distinct arrangements, inside seven days, to wriggle out of the uncommon circumstance.
"In Chandigarh, Sectors are 1.2 km long and 0.8 km wide. With every single vertical street being state expressways, 500 meters on either side of the street covers the entire of the city. In this manner, all segments come extremely close to state thruways," said home secretary Anurag Aggarwal, who is holding the charge of extract and tax collection. "In the case of nothing is done, the city whole won't have any alcohol distribute or bar in any lodging or eatery. Every one of them should shut down," he included.
WHAT'S THE SOLUTION?
Agarwal says as of now he can't state what the answer for this situation is. "We trust that the board of trustees brings an answer. We will accept a call after that," he said.
The board containing UT boss specialist, MC boss designer, boss engineer and extra extract and tax collection official will give its report inside seven days.

The city bar and eatery proprietors are in a condition of frenzy and are disagreeing with various experts. "We are gazing at an emergency," says Vipul Dua, proprietor of a noticeable bar and eatery here. "We are trusting that the organization can discover some arrangement. We are likewise anticipating February 28, the following date of hearing in the Supreme Court."
