Do you know what ‘dry days’ are? Dry days are specific days when the sale of alcohol in clubs, shops, and bars are prohibited by the government. These days are either an election or a festival day. People are advised not to plan or throw any huge party on these days as they might get into trouble. As per Section 23 of the Act, if you get caught buying and drinking alcohol, you are charged with a penalty of Rs. 1000 as punishment for the offence.
Here’s a list of dry days in India in 2022 to plan parties in advance.
