Alcohol is the latest battleground for States to initiate cash flow. All the states in India had been in constant request and demand for cash to deal with the pandemic crisis which includes medicine, ppe, ration for the poor, medical care, quarantine facility, pensions, taking care of the people on the street, food for the needy, and a number of economic crisis the states face.

Delhi: Liquor has turned out to be the last hope for state to make money to combat the current economic crisis and to fight the coronavirus outbreak. Modi banned alcohol sales during the lock-down which naturally turned down the major revenue for many states. It was a direct source of tax income. It would have been a direct income for states already struggling to provide food to millions of poor and jobless people. Around Rs. 700 crore is a days revenue on an average from liquor sales.

 

Many states like Punjab have come forward to a direct fight to lift the ban on alcohol. All other means of revenue have been dried up and there is no other way states could pull through these hard times.
