Now you certainly don’t want to be the star of this movie, do you? Ever happened that you figure on a dry day that you don’t have any alcohol in stock and you just got to know it’s a dry day?

So, What Are Dry Days Exactly?

On Dry Days consumption of alcohol is prohibited. There are specific days in India on which the alcohol shops down their shutters and holidays goes waste. Mahatma Gandhi also discouraged alcohol consumption hence the dry days are followed strictly.

Except for Gandhi Jayanti, Republic Day, and Independence Day, tell me, (be honest, God is watching!) how many more dry days could you recollect? None! No problem, we have got you a list of dry days in India so you can stock your poison before the wine shops close.
