Amendment to Excise Policy okayed

Chandigarh, September 13

The state Cabinet also approved amendment to provisions of the Haryana Excise Policy for 2017-18.

As per the amendment, a licensee, who has not established all his allowed vends or sub-vends, may be allowed to establish vends or sub-vends at locations alongside the national highways or state highways in the municipal areas on the payment of additional fee. The number of new establishments will be subject to the maximum limit prescribed in the Excise Policy.

The additional licence fee for shifting or setting up a liquor vend or a sub-vend has been fixed at 30 per cent of average of the licence fee of one vend in the zone for the remaining period. The quantum of additional licence fee, therefore, would be in proportion to the licence fee of a zone. The bars, pubs, clubs, licences in banquets except L-2, L-14A, composite liquor vends and their sub-vends will be allowed to establish or renew their licences alongside the national or state highways in the municipal areas without payment of any additional licence fee.

It is expected that the state may get additional revenue of Rs 20 crore on account of licence fee, duty and VAT. It is expected that additional revenue of Rs 25 crore will be received from liquor vends that may get shifted to places along the national and state highways. — TNS
