 Karnataka High Court Rules Women can Serve Alcohol

In a landmark judgment, the Karnataka High Court has ruled that women can be employed at places that serve alcohol.

The ruling also quashes the existing "Karnataka Excise Act 1965", which prohibits women from working at such places including pubs, dance bars and live bands, where liquor is served.


The High Court while announcing its verdict also referred to a similar judgment by the Supreme Court last year, which permitted women to be employed as bar tenders provided their security was ensured.

While talking to media, Advocate for the live band association, bar girls association A.N. Ramesh said the High Court today quashed the Karnataka Excise Act 1965 and allowed women to serve liquor in bars.

Karnataka live band association's secretary Sanjay Kochar who fought the case said this judgment would provide more employment to women in Karnataka.
