Need rule for carrying Alcohal/Liquor in Train  


What are the rules for carrying 2 Ltr Liquor with receipt from Duty free shop in train? I will just carry it from Delhi to Lucknow and will not consume during the journey. I see many posts regarding the same but no where mentions the reference legal links.


Hello Guest,
