Maharashtra to use hologram tech to check spurious liquor

In order to check sale of spurious liquor, the Maharashtra Government has decided to make it mandatory to have a hologram on every alcohol bottle manufactured and sold in the State.
Henceforth, no liquor bottle will be allowed to be sold in the state without the hologram. Twenty-one states in the country are already using the hologram technology. The decision was taken keeping in mind the last years tragedy at Malwani where about 100 people died after consuming spurious liquor.

A recent Excise Department survey found that while the liquor production in the state was two lakh bottles, the sale figure stood at 6 lakh bottles which indicates that there are fake liquor manufacturer in the state. Khadse said the State earned excise duty worth about Rs 18,000 crore, inclusive of VAT, from liquor sales last fiscal. There are 159 liquor manufacturers in the State.
