You have done a mistake, be polite in front of the Honorable Judge, admit your mistake, you may not be punished imprisnment, you may be fined upro 3000/-, dont repeat such mistake again. 




As per your version of query,you may be fined at the maximum Rs. 5000 but no imprisionment under 'Delhi Excise Act 2010'.


For your Reference,I am attaching the 'Delhi Excise Act 2010' herewith.Go through Section 40 of this Act.

dringkin in public without coourage?


you are advised well.


I do not understand why you asked this question

" how i should treat the judge when i will stand in front of him?"

you have no choice but to be polite and submissive. It is not a filmy court that you can should on the judge.


there is a fine of Rs. 5000/- for consumping liquor in public place as per new act of Delhi Excise Act, 

if you created nuisance after consumping liquor then have to pay Rs. 10000/-

better is accept your mistake and prayed to court it will not be happed in future, it is my first and last , the court will impose minimum amount 



Dear Mohit

No need to worry, this offence is punishable only for fine upto 5000/-

if you are unable to face the court then engage a lawyer.


i agree with respected members who have replied. they have guided you well, be on time, be polite, accept your mistake and put this episode behind you, move on with your life.

you must contest this case. pleaded guilty is amount to conviction. 


@Ld. Member Ansari,


Contesting a case is a wise act in case the nature of offence is grave.Why to spend more money in contesting the case if you have the following advantges or say option-


1.In the querist committed offence,the maximum amount of fine is Rs. 5000.Better to pay this amount if really got convicted.


2.Orally begging pardon at least could help in lowering this amount if not acquitted.
