However, this comes at a price. Restaurant/bar owners will have to pay Rs 5000 to avail this facility. In addition, hotel owners will also be allowed to serve liquor in the campus park, for an additional fee of Rs 10 thousand. But it will depend on the collector’s discretion as to how many times a year he will allow hotels, restaurants, resorts, and clubs to open the bar till 2 o’clock in the night.
