E-Liquor Permit? Nothing To Cheer

MUMBAI: As part of its efforts to improve 'ease of doing business' in the state, the excise department has launched an online system and mobile app through which citizens can get permit to drink alcohol. Anyone above 25 years of age can get themselves registered on exciseservices.mahaonline.gov.in using Aadhar number, after which they can get the permit on the app.

However, the process is not as simple as the government claims. For, citizens will have to provide a lot of details -such as the venue, the amount of liquor to be bought and consumed, the name of the organizer, etc -to get a permit for a day, a year or lifetime.

Besides, bar owners and shop keepers can also apply for licences online. "This is a part of the state initiative to improve ease of doing business. The department aims to increase the revenue by making various services ea sier and simpler," excise minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule said.

"The department earns an annual revenue of around Rs 12,000 crore. Through the online system and other tech-driven initiatives, we hope to increase it to Rs 30,000 crore," Bawankule told TOI. "People can also register complaints about illegal sale of liquor on the app," the minister added.
