Huda estate officer Ashutosh Rajan has sent a letter to the excise and taxation department to consider the plan while fixing the liquor vends in the coming financial year. He said the land for liquor vends belongs to Huda and it will have to take approval of residents.
Explaining the process, he said when the department will be deciding the place for the liquor vend, an RWA person would be called and suggestions taken before the final decision, so that both residents and liquor vend owners do not develop any differences.
Rajan said, “This is a long pending issue. With this step, the problem will not arise in future.”
A reply from the excise and taxation department is awaited on Monday. Citizens welfare association has appreciated the step “If everything will go as per the plan, it will be good for residents, especially women, who face problems while crossing the liquor vends,” said an association member.
