New Delhi: The AAP government on Thursday allowed the setting up of microbreweries in the capital.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the cabinet here, Deputy Chief Minster Manish Sisodia said.

Set up in pubs and hotels, microbreweries produce a small amount of fresh beer, which is served to customers. Until now, beer drinkers would go to neighboring Gurgaon in Haryana to have freshly brewed beer.

The AAP government has also set up a committee to junk outdated licences.

“A committee has been set up to review each and every license to do business. It will also see even if there are some important licences and the clause of their annual renewal can be removed,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

“”There is still a license raj and the Delhi government wants to end it. To do business, small and big traders have to get about 50 licences. And the process of getting these licenses is very difficult” he said.

“Even if somebody gets it, it has be renewed annual from various agencies ranging from police to Delhi government’s various departments. It’s a source of corruption, ” he added.

The committee, headed by principal secretary, finance, has to do its work by July 31.
