Excise Deptt cracks at wine shops in Nagpur that sell liquor at the doorstep

Nagpur updates: Wine shops in Nagpur have been found to supply liquor at customers ‘ doorsteps to earn extra money in yet another shocking revelation. The State Excise Department behaved aggressively when criminal activity was revealed and penalized the perpetrators. A number of culpable wine shops faced stern actions by Excise officials, Excise Superintendent Pramod Sonone told Nagpur updates.

“Such a situation we have experienced for quite some time now. After proof, the Excise officials started cracking whips at the wine shops for the unauthorized distribution of liquor at the doorsteps. We’ve also revoked licenses from a number of liquor shops for violating Excise regulations, “the Excise Superintendent said.

According to the Nagpur City State Excise Department’s Excise Superintendent, people who drink and sell liquor need to abide by Maharashtra Excise Department norms. He told Nagpur Today that the action of the department was entirely based on the complaints or inputs received and clarified that the “Excise Department does not harass people excessively for consuming alcohol in the comfort of their homes.

“Under the condition of anonymity, a source from the local wine shop revealed to Nagpur Today that, if a customer is known to us (mostly) and promises us more money, we will be able to do so. Earlier Nagpur Today also revealed the nasty trick of online food delivery boys who were also found supplying their customers with liquor and cigarettes to earn extra bucks.

It is relevant to mention that, back in 2018, former State Excise Minister Chandrashekar Bawankule mooted the concept of online delivery of liquor at doorsteps.

But following a series of demonstrations and complaints, the move was quickly scrapped. It seems, though, the city-based wine shops have started capitalizing on the idea of receiving moolah from the former excise minister.
