No liquor bars are allowed to function in Erode and strict action will be taken if the ban is violated, said District Collector C. Kadiravan.
In a press release, he said ”In the Erode district, all FL2 and FL3 licensed bars were previously allowed to operate until 9 pm with 50 per cent of the customers due to corona infection.
Bars were not allowed to operate due to a complete general freeze on Sunday.
The government has ordered the closure of all FL2, FL3 and all liquor stores operating in the Erode district from April 26 until further orders due to the current outbreak of the disease.
These bars should not run until re-ordered. Strict action will be taken if liquor is sold there”, he added.
