NEWS | Five-star hotels in Chennai, Tiruchirappally to serve liquor 24 hours

Tamil Nadu government has allowed five-star hotels in Chennai and Tiruchirappally to serve liquor round the clock. This will be applicable to similar hotels in Coimbatore and Madurai provided they pay double the amount of privilege fee. In view of the presence of international civil airports in Chennai and Tiruchirappally, the hours of business of five-star hotels for the purpose of serving liquor have been made round the clock straightaway.
As there are no international airports in Coimbatore and Madurai, five-hotels there have been treated differently. An order to this effect was issued by the Home, Prohibition and Excise Department on June 26, 2012. The latest move by the government, which rakes in a lot of revenue from liquor sales through state-run outlets, is seen more as an effort to ensure availability of quality pint to foreign travellers who reach the respective cities at odd hours. However, the 24-hour availability of alcohol has not been extended to outlets run by Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation (TASMAC). Other hotels are allowed to do business for an additional hour, as per a report by The Hindu. The annual privilege fee for non-proprietary clubs in Chennai has been hiked from Rs four lakh to Rs ten lakh. In the remaining parts of the state, the revised fee is Rs six lakh. The fee for five-star hotels is Rs 16 lakh; four-star hotels - Rs. nine lakh; three-star hotels – Rs six lakh; two-star hotels - Rs. 4.5 lakh and one-star and other hotels – Rs three lakh, according to the order, stated the report.
