Liquor is one of the most influential things out there (pun intended). “Under the influence” is a phrase that has often made people do stupid things and make half-thought through decisions. With the elections coming up in Delhi, this is not just a silly issue, the distribution of alcohol sway voters and their votes is a trick that politicians have been using from a long time. But not anymore.

What’s the update?

The excise commission in Delhi has decided to digitize all liquor sales ahead of the next elections. Now, every single bottle will have to be scanned and the bar code recorded before selling the said bottle. Not just that, now every single liquor store will have to maintain a record of the entire stock, brands and types of liquor they have as well as open and close at the designated store opening and closing time.

A circular released by the excise commission talked of setting 90% as the target of the sales done via scanning in June and a 100% by October.

What does it mean?

The new rule has been proposed to make sure that the liquor sales can be tracked. Though, this move will not affect the normal liquor sale or you and me purchasing liquor. It will make sure that the token system sale of alcohol is taken care of.

This in turn will make sure that the sale and purchase of alcohol that is done during election time is curbed and distribution of alcohol as bribe to sway the vote, is no more an option.

To this, we say: Well Played Excise Commission, Well Played!
