Women can be employed in liquor shops says Kerala High Court.

In a significant order, that can have major repercussions in gender equality,the Kerala High Court has permitted employment of women in foreign liquor retail shops terming as "unsustainable" and "violative of the Constitution" the state's rules restraining women from such jobs. Such orders and rules "are violative of Article 14 and 15 of the Constitution and are therefore unsustainable", the court said in a recent order about the state government's Foreign Liquor Rules as well as a government order that women cannot be engaged to work in foreign liquor shops. The court directed the Kerala Public Service Commission to advise the petitioners for appointment to the post of peon/ helper in the corporation from the ranked list immediately, in view of the fact that the persons who are lower down in the ranked list have already been appointed.It also directed Kerala State Beverages Corporation, Kerala Public Service Commission and the state government to take steps to re-work the appointments made from the ranked list in accordance with the judgement at the earliest, in accordance with law.
