Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday allowed home delivery of liquor in Mumbai, except in containment zones.
But over-the-counter sale of liquor will not be allowed yet, it said.
 
“E-commerce platforms may be utilised by the liquor shops permitted to do home delivery,” said the BMC order.
 
Liquor sale was earlier completely banned in the city, which is worst affected by the coronavirus outbreak in the country. Mumbai on Friday recorded its highest one-day increase in the number of coronavirus patients at 1,751, which took the city's tally of cases to 27,068, said the BMC.
