Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government has allowed the resumption of counter sale of liquor, which was suspended due to the COVID-19 situation, from July 1.
In order to regulate crowd at the shops, an online system for generation of e-token for slot booking has been developed by the Odisha State Beverage Corporation (OSBC) for taking a prior appointment to visit the shops.
The feature is available on OSBC portal (http://osbc.co.in). One needs to click the ‘Slot Booking’ option on the homepage of the website and enter his/her mobile phone number.
The e-token so generated can be downloaded from the link received through SMS on the mobile phone.
The shops will remain open for the counter sale of liquor from 7:00 AM to 6:00 P.M.
