As we step into the festive wedding season, the excise department of the Delhi government is encouraging individuals to obtain temporary P-10 licenses. This move aims to ensure responsible consumption of liquor during celebratory occasions, with a focus on discouraging public drinking, as highlighted by officials on Monday.

The excise department emphasizes the importance of serving liquor in a proper and lawful manner by obtaining the necessary permit, particularly during the peak months of November and December when the demand for alcohol surges due to the bustling wedding season in Delhi.

Despite the growing number of festivals and wedding functions, official data reveals that only 1,716 P-10 licenses were issued in October and November of this year. This underscores the need for increased awareness and compliance with regulations surrounding the serving of liquor at marriage parties.

For those planning to host events, P-10 licenses are a requisite for serving liquor, and the fees vary based on the venue. Banquet halls, motels, and farmhouses incur a fee of Rs 15,000, while any other location requires a payment of Rs 5,000. Additionally, private parties and functions held at hotels and restaurants fall under the purview of the P-13 license, obtainable for Rs 10,000.

Looking at the broader picture, between October and February of the 2022-23 fiscal year, a total of 8,237 P-10 licenses were issued. The subsequent months, from March to September 2023, witnessed the issuance of 5,353 licenses, indicating a consistent demand for permits throughout the year.

In support of this initiative, the International Spirits and Wines Association of India (ISWAI) issued a statement, encouraging individuals to consume alcohol responsibly during celebratory events like weddings. The organization emphasizes that a successful wedding celebration is one where cherished memories are created without compromising anyone’s well-being. As we navigate the joyous wedding season, let’s raise a toast responsibly and ensure a harmonious blend of festivities and safety. Cheers to creating lasting memories while upholding the spirit of responsible celebration!

During a recent cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised colleagues to postpone visits to Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir due to the overwhelming number of devotees. Citing concerns about the heavy rush and potential inconvenience caused by VIPs adhering to protocols, the PM suggested Union Ministers plan their Ayodhya visits in March, according to government sources.

Simultaneously, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed officials to ensure efficient crowd management for the convenient ‘darshan’ of Ram Lalla. Over five lakh people visited the Ram temple on Tuesday after the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony. Adityanath urged public cooperation and patience, emphasizing that everyone deserves a darshan of the deity. The newly constructed temple’s doors opened at 6 am.

India secured the fourth spot in global market valuation, outpacing Hong Kong with a market capitalization of $4.3 trillion on January 22, according to Bloomberg. This achievement marks another triumph in India’s ongoing bull rally since hitting a multi-year low in March 2020. Contributing to this surge are global factors, including a shift toward a China-plus supply chain strategy, favoring India as a key alternative manufacturing source.

Internationally, the prolonged post-pandemic slowdown in China, juxtaposed with India’s resilient economic performance, has prompted increased fund allocation to the Indian market by international managers. Domestically, India stands out as one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies, driven by robust tax collections, controlled inflation, strong corporate earnings, and a stable currency.

The stark performance contrast between India and Hong Kong is evident, with India’s benchmark Sensex surging two-and-a-half times since March 2020, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index has seen a 33% decline. This exceptional outperformance, coupled with the listing of various companies, has propelled India to surpass Hong Kong in market capitalization.

Suman Bannerjee, CIO at Hedonova, sees India’s rise as a milestone, underscoring the nation’s economic resilience. He emphasizes that this achievement not only signifies numerical triumph but also positions India as a key player in the global financial arena, reflecting the country’s economic fortitude and promising prospects for investors navigating the vibrant Indian stock market landscape.
