Delhi will pay its Excise renewal fees online from August 1, 2015


Renewal is not linked to the licences of the police, municipal corporations and tourism departments.

“The move of the Delhi government to ease the Excise renewal process online, by just paying the relevant fee, is a welcome step. Requirement of repeat documentation and time/manpower wastage will end,” said Vyoum Ghai, chairman, Legal & Liaising Committee, NRAI.

The Delhi government said that this step will relieve the licencees from the hassle of making rounds of the department to seek renewal after furnishing various kinds of NOC. As per new rules, the applicants won’t have to furnish details of linked licence of municipal corporations, Delhi Police and the Department of Tourism at the time of renewal. The licence can be renewed without waiting for the renewal of linked licences of police, municipal corporations and Tourism Department.

“But applicants will have to give details of renewal of such linked licence to the department through online once it is done by other concerned agencies,” said an Excise department official.

An NRAI delegation met the Excise commissioner on July 24, 2015 to discuss various issues, including details of the recently announced microbreweries policy.

NRAI also received as very positive response for Delhi’s District Magistrate (South West) for its recommendations on improving the licensing procedures. This is part of the government’s initiative to ease these norms by forming a special committee.

Please contact the NRAI office for further information & support. 

“We are likely to meet with the committee soon and make a presentation for the reduction of licenses required for restaurants,” said Ghai, who is also director of the Suribachi & Buzz Restaurants.

In its budget 2015-16, the AAP government increased luxury tax from% to 15% for all applicable establishments, including hotels.
