The New Excise Policy of Jammu and Kashmir has barred opening of any wine shop within radius of 50 meters of religious places and educational institutions across the Union Territory. The Excise Policy, released today, will come into force from April 1 this year and will remain in place for 1 year.

The copy of J&K Excise Policy 2024-25 reads that an individual to whom a license is granted may preferably establish the vend 50 meters away from any recognised educational institute and religious place. The clause has been added after widespread protest and criticism by various social and religious groups last year.
