5-star Quilon Beach Hotel in the Kollam city of Kerala has been lost its bar licence by the Excise Commissioner Mr. Anil Xavier,  who founded that the hotel didn’t get back its five-star status licence from the Government of India’s Tourism Department for the year 2015-2016. It is only one bar hotel in the city, which offers alcoholic drink in the city.

The Excise Circle Office said,

“The hotel management had earlier applied online for bar licence renewal for the year 2015-2016 and was issued the same”.

But during the inspection of the hotel, the Excise team found that they had not extended the period of validity of its five-star status for this year.

The Quilon Beach Hotel received a notice from the Excise Commissioner in which, he wants a reply within 15 days on why its licence should not be cancelled. Based on the order of the High Court that liquor bar in the state should be issued only to five-star category hotels. Excise circle inspector Mr. J. Thajudeenkutty submitted a report to the Kollam Deputy Excise Commissioner (DEC) to start the compulsory actions against the hotel.

The Tourism Department also told that the licence of the five-star status for this hotel was under process. On this basis, the DEC sent a report to the Excise Commissioner for the needful action, which in turn resulted in the suspension of bar licence. The liquor bar of the hotel was sealed on Monday told by Mr. Thajudeen.
