Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government has revised the timings for sale of liquor in the city during the Hockey World Cup, informed Excise Minister Shashi Bhusan Behera today.

Only hotels and bars in Bhubaneswar will be allowed to sale liquor till 1:30 am during the sporting event. The previous decision of allowing liquor ‘on’ shops to remain open till 1:30 am was unintentional, the minister said.

In view of the arrival of international players, guests and officials in Bhubaneswar during the World Cup, the state government had taken the decision amending the Odisha Excise Rules, 2017 for an interim period of a month.
