The reason, of course, varies from the low capita resto bars with bar licenses, dingy outlets, lack of safety, and inadequate crowd control in the country.
The study, conducted by the research agency on behalf of the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), shows the popularity of drinking in cars is less in Gurugram (25 per cent) and even Lucknow (32 per cent ). The sample size was 1,300, including drinkers or those tolerant of alcohol consumption, between the age of 25 and 35 years in Delhi, Gurugram and Lucknow in SEC A and B demographics. About 80 per cent of the respondents were men; the rest were women. However, in Delhi, women constituted only 10 per cent of the sample.
