Liquor sales by private wine shops in Andhra Pradesh will be closed today. The government will operate liquor stores from tomorrow. In this context, the work of evacuating shops involves alcohol traders. The Excise Department, on the other hand, is in charge of filling cargo, hiring staff and opening new stores.
The AP government is implementing a ban on phases. Against this backdrop, the government is setting up 3,448 stores, down 20 per cent from the existing 4,380 stores.
It remains to be how effective this scheme would be whether this fulfills government requirements like earlier as for any state this revenue becomes the major one that fills the kitty.
