Delhi High court is yet to decide the request for legal drinking age below 25.

On Friday, the plea was examined where it was asked to lower down the drinking age from 25 years. Since other states have low age restrictions for alcohol consumption as compare to Delhi.

The current ruling government has to respond to HC against 25 years as the minimum legal age for buying and drinking alcohol.

Chief justice Gita Mittal and justice C Hari Shankar would be the ones to hear the explanation of Delhi government’s excise department on the public interest litigation for legal alcohol consumption age in Delhi.

One excise department member said that “issue regarding the plea will be sent along necessary data which proves actions, all the relevant documents will be submitted in writing to the court”.

Since this pint was raise, it came to know that according to PIL the legal age for drinking alcohol in UP is 21 and Rajasthan is 18.

The high age restriction in Delhi made teenagers move to other cities for alcohol consumption.

“The difference between different states regarding the matter of drinking is what coming from historic times and it could have a drastic effect on people below 25 who roam around from one state to another as it made them legal in all states except Delhi which would stop him/her from consuming alcohol,” the plea said.

Among the youth 67% of people between the age group 18 – 25 who drinks have never been asked to show ID proof by liquor vendor, this does have the negative effect on society.

Delhi Police’s traffic chief Depender Pathak said that “Most of the crimes and accidents happen in Delhi are under the action of witted minds which were carried away after alcohol consumption”.

Mujeed Ahmed, a road safety expert and the founder of the NGO Safely said when people are considered matured to be married at 21 then there is no need to put a barrier on alcohol consumption at the age of 25.

“Age doesn’t matter if people follow rules and buy alcohol by showing a valid ID proof” added by Ahmed

The matter will now be heard on October 9.
