Supreme court's order to ban the sale of liquor within the distance of 500 metres has come into force from April 1, 2017.
Read, how has the hospitality industry reacted to it.
Although the ban came into force in 2016, it will now affect hotels and restaurants.
Supreme Court's order made it clear that ban would affect bars, liquor shops, hotels, restaurants and malls.
This is because it has affected hospitality industry directly along with big and small businesses.
The business of all the 10 hotels at Aerocity, situated within 500 metres of National Highway-8, will be affected.
"The land was allotted by the government for commercial purposes and to set up hotels. Now it will get impacted because of the decision. It will impact the overall hospitality industry," said a premium hotel owner from the area.
Court's decision will affect 789 wine shops. It will also affect 2,289 bars and restaurants. No liquor will be sold in Goa's most popular and largest mall in Porvorim.
Rajasthan Excise Commissioner, O P Yadav, said, "We had undertaken a survey after the initial judgment and figured there were 2,800 vendors. Now with the latest clarification by the apex court, we will have to undertake a fresh survey for hotels, bars etc, once we get a copy of the order."
In Kerala, 700 out of 850 beer and wine parlours will face closure. Only five of the 32 five-star hotels in the state, which sell Indian-Made Foreign Liquor, would be able to sell liquor.
"How does safety on highways get affected if guests staying in those hotels have a glass of beer or wine with dinner? I am sorry to hear that the Supreme Court took this view. Uniform ban like this will be detrimental to the hospitality industry."
