Under this system, people can apply for tokens through a web link which will give customers a specific time for purchasing alcohol so that there is no violation of social distancing norms placed to the curb the spread of COVID-19, as they wait outside liquor stores.

The e-token is sent on mobile phones of registered people.

The Delhi government has allowed around 200 liquor shops to operate in the city.

"The government has so far issued around 4.75 lakh e-token since Thursday evening to people to buy liquor without standing in long queues," the official said.
