Itagar, July 27: The Aruchal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society (APWWS) has urged Capital administration to take urgent steps to check alcohol mece, especially among the under-aged. A team of APWWS on Wednesday met Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Prince Dhawan and expressed serious concern over unchecked selling of alcoholic beverage to minors. The team suggested that there should be strict monitoring in all retail liquor outlets, bars and restaurants to ensure that sales of
alcohol or alcoholic beverage to minors do not occur, APWWS said.
Despite the legal drinking age being 21 years, many liquor shops are found selling alcohol to minors disregarding the law, APWWS stated.
It was informed by the deputy commissioner that adequate measures have already been taken by the District Administration to check the mece. Some of them are mandatory display of Dos and Don’ts for alcohol retailers, regulation of shopping hours.
The APWWS also urged the deputy commissioner for proper verification and monitoring of private schools and beauty parlours.
Underscoring the importance of marriage registration for women, the APWWS requested the Deputy Commissioner to conduct mass marriages registration programme which would not only help check bigamy or polygamy but also eble married women and widows to claim their rights.
