‘Special Corona Fee’

Sources said that liquor in Delhi will cost more from Tuesday as the government has decided to levy a 70 percent ‘Special Corona Fee’ on its sale in Delhi. This will supercharge government revenue, which has been hit hard due to the coronavirus-forced lockdown. “70 percent ‘Special Corona Fee’ has been imposed on the MRP of liquor bottles. The new rate will be applicable from Tuesday,” a source said. The idea was considered on Monday at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
