Concept of Dry Day in India and respective states

A dry day is a religious or national festival when alcohol is not on sale in bars, pubs and liquor stores. The only thing we have in common with that long list of dry days in Mumbai in 2020 is that we won’t get our favourite booze like any other day. We want to prepare you for these dark days so that you do not run out of alcohol at the last minute.

Many states, including Maharashtra, strictly abide by the alcohol ban for a week for festivals, religious celebrations and national holidays like Gandhi Jayanti, Mahalaya Amavasya, Dussehra, Eid-e-Milad, Maharishi Valmiki Jayanti and so on. This is a gesture of goodwill rather than a blanket ban on the sale of alcohol. Maharashtra has nine official dry days in the calendar year on which the district collectors are authorized to prohibit the sale and distribution of spirits during general elections and elections to the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly as a rule of the 1949 Maharashtra Prohibition Act.
