adds that “provided that the distance restriction shall not apply in areas designated as ‘Commercial’ or ‘Industrial’ by the Development or Town Planning Authorities.”
Narayanan prayed for a directive to ensure that no liquor shop or bar or pub or such other sets-up serving liquor was located within 500 metres in municipal corporations and municipalities and 1000 metres in other rural areas from any educational institution, hospital, place of worship and residential areas.
When the matter came up for hearing, the Additional Advocate-General produced an order passed by a division Bench of the Madurai Bench on August 27, 2015 in which Rule 8(1) of the TN Liquor Retail Vending Rules 2003 was examined in the context of “how the distance between the Tasmac shop and educational institutions has to be measured”.
The present Bench also informed the TASMAC senior counsel that in terms of the order dated August 27, 2014 in another case, reference was made in TN Survey and Boundaries Act and the Rules framed thereunder. In terms of section 4 of the said Act, the State government had to appoint Survey Officers. Measuring the distance scientifically was set out in the TN Survey and Boundaries Rules, it added.
When the matter came up on Thursday, the senior counsel for TASMAC gave the above assurance. He added that if the shops were found located as per Rule 8 (1) of the said Rules, then those shops would be shifted with the permission of the District Collector as per Rule 9. He prayed for six months time to collect the data on the location of 6,776 shops and another six months to shift them.
