Now, you can serve liquor at home during a family function without worrying about lawmen breathing down your neck.
The Kerala High Court on Friday held liquor licence (FL-6) was not needed for serving liquor on special occasions within the precincts of a person's house. The HC made it clear a private function at home did not fall within Rule 13 (6) of the Foreign Liquor Rules, 1953.
"But even to those private family functions, other regulations, including quantity of liquor and the identity of place, will apply," the court observed.
Stressing the importance of hospitality, the court cited a Sanskrit proverb - 'Atithi Devo Bhava.'
