In a bid to ensure physical distancing and to stop overcrowding at liquor shops, the Delhi government on May 7 launched an e-token service to buy liquor.
The Delhi government took this decision to encourage people to avoid long queues by applying for an e-token with time slot at any nearby shop to buy liquor. Any person can apply for an e-token through the link https://www.qtoken.in/.
While applying, name and phone number will be required and the e-coupon will be sent at the registered mobile number, which will enable the person to buy liquor from the nearby shops. This will be an additional facility to reduce overcrowding at the liquor shops.
In the third phase of the lockdown, the central government has given some relaxations by which stand-alone liquor shops can be opened.
Following the guidelines of the central government, the Delhi government has given permission to open around 200 shops across the National Capital from May 4. However, due to overcrowding and long queues in some areas, only 50 shops could be kept open.
