With 24 hours left for the restriction to begin, the government has issued directives to all licensed premises, to stop sale and consumption of alcohol from midnight on June 10 to on June 11 .
The ban will resume on the day of results, June 13, from 8 am to midnight. However, bar and restaurant owners are allowed to keep their outlets open. But only to serve food on the dates mentioned, the government’s notice stated.
That's not it!
A similar order has been issued stating that no liquor will be allowed to be transported from one place to another within the state of Goa from June 10 to June 11 and on June 13 as well.
