The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has postponed its ban on selling liquor at grocers, convenience stores, and Chinese medicine shops
The ban, announced in November last year and scheduled to come into effect today, 1 October, prohibits the sale of hard liquor in sundry shops, convenience stores, and traditional Chinese medicine shops in Kuala Lumpur but permits the sale of beer between 7am and 9pm if it is separated from other beverages.
DBKL has now said that these shops can continue to sell liquor till 31 October.
It said that the postponement of the ban's enforcement was to allow a study related to the control of liquor sales in KL to be completed
Meanwhile, people have been reminded that they are not allowed to set up camping tents along the banks of Putrajaya Lake:
