The state government of Tamil Nadu has made some amendments to the Tamil Nadu Liquor (Licence and Permit) Rule, 1981. It has released a special licencing provision in order to serve liquor to visitors, guests, and participants at commercial places and household functions. 

The licence has to be acquired before serving liquor at any international summit, national summit, international event, national event, celebration, festival, conference, or other events.

This newly released order states that the annual fees for the delivery of alcohol in commercial locations, such as conference centres, wedding venues, sports stadiums, etc., are ₹1,000,000 in areas under a municipal corporation, ₹75,000 in municipality areas, and ₹50,000 in other locations.
