Haryana rules

According to Haryana Excise Rules, any person can carry one case of liquor anywhere in the state. But cannot bring it from any other state. Doing so is a crime. A case can be filed against the person concerned.

Absolutely no permission in Noida metro line

However, traveling with liquor is not allowed in the Aqua Line metro of Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC), even if the liquor bottle is for sale in Uttar Pradesh.

What are the rules in Delhi?

According to a Delhi excise official, any person can bring one unsealed 750 ml bottle of liquor from another state into Delhi. Bringing sealed bottles from another state is not allowed. If there is an entry of two bottles in the passport of a passenger coming from the airport, then he can bring two bottles.

Action will be taken in Noida

Gautam Buddha Nagar District Excise Officer Subodh Kumar Srivastava has clarified that this system of DMRC will not be applicable in Uttar Pradesh. If any passenger reaches Noida by metro with liquor and finds a sealed bottle of foreign or any other state, then he will be fined and the liquor bottle will be confiscated.

If a sealed open bottle is found with the passenger, no action will be taken against it. However, if a passenger is found to have a maximum of four bottles of liquor or four pavvas or 12 cans of beer sold in Uttar Pradesh, then no action will be taken against him. This is the maximum limit for carrying alcohol.

If liquor sold in Uttar Pradesh is found in more quantity than this, the person will come under the ambit of action. Faridabad ACP Headquarters Aman Yadav said that till now no such case has come to our notice that any person is bringing liquor from Delhi in the metro. 

Still an eye is being kept. The excise policy of the state will be followed at all costs. After this, the police of the concerned police stations have been alerted.
