Alcohol-licensing and distribution associated laws are state subject in India- i.e. these laws differ from one state to the other. Selling of alcohol via an agent is not possible given current state of laws.

For instance, the Bombay prohibition act prohibits transport, buying, selling, stocking, producing and consuming alcoholic drinks unless done in the manner prescribed by law. For doing any of the above, you need a license.  License, unlike lease cannot be transferred to an agent.


Alcohol must be bought from a licensed shop only. Selling liquor online, microbrewery etc. via an agent are illegal in India
