Despite the fact, COVID-19 cases started increasing rapidly whereas we are still looking for vaccine and cure for the COIVD-19, but state Governments of India decided to open the liquor shops to generate some revenue. As we know that “The Corona phase” is going on, in the meantime, it was decided to open the liquor shops during the third phase of lockdown. We all know that keeping in view the increasing invasion of Corona, it was decided to increase the lock-down and the liquor shops were closed. But then, the liquor shops were opened a few days ago on government approval. When the liquor shops opened, such a vast mass of people burst into the liquor shops that it was tough to spot if anything like social distancing existed in the world. The crowd of people with uncontrollable alcohol urge was too tough to handle and control. After a lot of thought, it was decided that liquor shops should be opened because liquor is a huge source of revenue to the states and the economy is almost at a halt due to the COVID-19 and the lockdown.
Yet, no one knew that liquor shops would attract such a crowd and league will be seen violating the rules of social distancing. For this reason, a decision has been taken to make liquor accessible to households online. For this, a separate website has also been launched so that liquor shops are not overcrowded and social distancing is followed. Now the decision has been taken that the alcohol consumers will have to take an e-token first, after this the token will have to be shown at the liquor store, and then the alcohol will be made available to them. In view of the large crowd, the Delhi government allowed the opening of 200 liquor shops, to make liquor available online through E-Tokens. This article will let you know, how can you apply for E-token and how you will get liquor through E-Token. By following the steps given below, we can easily apply for E-Token.

Why there was a need to launch a separate website for the sale of alcohol?
As of late, the Delhi government has lifted the restriction on the offer of alcohol. When the Delhi government chose to open all alcohol shops, it was not long after that, that the shops began being crowded because of which social distancing was not being followed appropriately. To take care of this issue, the Delhi government made a site called Q-Token entry where you should take a token first and on that token, you will be receiving a message when you need to arrive at the shop to get the alcohol without violating the rules. Huge lines of more than 4 km were spotted in front of alcohol shops because of which the organization was experiencing issues in controlling the group. In this context, the Delhi government has permitted all liquor consumers to gather tokens through the site www.qtoken.in. This token will help you in buying alcohol.
