The Supreme Court today said that there was no need to further clarify its order on prohibiting liquor vends within 500 metre of the national and state highways across the country.

Recently, the apex court has modified its order and allowed the sale of liquor within 500 metre alongside highways in some hilly areas and in Chandigarh, where the highways near the city have been denotified.

“Our Chandigarh order says everything. If states do not understand it, there is nothing we can do,” a bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said when senior advocate Arvind Datar mentioned the matter and sought clarification.

The notification or denotification of highways was a policy matter and the court would not interfere in it, the bench said.

Earlier, the apex court had dismissed a plea challenging the Chandigarh administration’s decision to allow the sale of liquor by denotifying highways as district roads.
