Deputy Commissioner says he is aware of the issue and was seeking expert opinion

In the wake of the Supreme Court order banning liquor vends, bars and pubs within 500 metres of national and State highways, a few hotels and complexes in Gurugram have changed the entrance to their establishments.

At least three hotels– The Oberoi, The Trident and The Leela — have shut the main entrance and opened the staff gate for their guests.

Reaction behind the move
The move is being viewed as a way to increase the motorable distance from National Highway 8. The hotels have deployed security guards at the main gate to guide their guests to the new entrance.

He said he would seek the opinion of the Town and Country Planning Department on the new entrances before deciding on the distance from NH-8.
