India Rejects Anheuser-Busch InBev Request to Lift New Delhi Ban

Share This Article

An Indian court this week rejected the request from Anheuser-Busch InBev to put its three-year sales ban in New Delhi on hold, according to a report from Reuters. The ban went into effect in July after accusations of tax evasion through the use of multiple barcodes.

Delhi High Court Justice Navin Chawla declined to lift the ban, stating that the world’s largest beer manufacturer must first complete the appeals process. New Delhi’s excise commissioner previously rejected a request from AB InBev to delay implementing the ban.

Although he didn’t lift the ban, Chawla said he believed the barring AB InBev from selling products in the city was beyond the city government’s authority, and he will hear arguments on September 16th.
