Jaipur: The Rajasthan government has reversed its decision granting temporary bar licenses to hotels and restaurants along major roads in the state.
A notification of changes in bar license rules was issued was last week which paved way for hotels and restaurants located in 30-feet-wide roads getting temporary bar licenses.
The decision was opposed by several organisations and activists who alleged that it will encourage liquor consumption.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot held a meeting with officials on Friday and directed them to withdraw the notification.
He also asked the officials to prepare a plan for effective reforms and transparency in the excise system, according to a release.
