Little India alcohol curbs eased, steps to control crowds
Some 240 establishments in Little India and its surrounding areas, including restaurants, were given the all-clear yesterday to sell alcohol this weekend.
But these businesses - which hold public house and beer house licences - cannot let customers consume the drinks outside of their premises, as a ban on public consumption of alcohol remains in place.
Another 134 shops including convenience and liquor shops - which hold retail and wholesale licences - will be able to sell alcohol to customers on a takeaway basis between 6am and 8pm.
The Land Transport Authority also announced that private bus services that ferry workers to Little India on Sundays would resume, but at half the scheduled number for a start.
