Ahmedabad: To bolster tourism, the Gujarat government has started issuing liquor permits to people coming from outside the state at the airport, a minister said today.

Gujarat, where prohibition policy is in place, has seen tourists flow dipping over the years as compared to other states, mainly due to unavailability of liquor here.

"We have started the facility to issue liquor permits from the domestic airport for those coming from outside the state from February 15," Minister for Tourism Jaynarayan Vyas said.

"Any person who does not belong to Gujarat can avail the permit for liquor on demand after arrival at the airport," Principal Secretary Tourism Vipul Mitra said.

The permit entitles a person to buy liquor from five select leading hotels having bar facilities, a tourism department official said.
