The Delhi government on Monday approved a new excise policy, under which the minimum age for consumption of liquor will be lowered from 25 to 21 years.

During the press briefing, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also said there will be no government liquor stores in the city, nor will new liquor shops open in the capital. The move comes after the Delhi government panel’s suggestion to make 21 the permitted drinking age.

While Sisodia said that the main purpose of the new policy is to prevent evasion of tax and duties, the announcement made during the press conference has prompted a plethora of reactions online.

From serious tweets on the pros and cons of lowering the age to hilarious memes, here are some of the many reactions trending online.
