Excise Control Rooms set up to curb liquor movement

Mysore/Mysuru: Even before the enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct in the district for the forthcoming Assembly elections, the Excise Department has strengthened its actions against unauthorised sale of liquor besides curbing the movement of liquor across the district and the Constituencies that come under it.

The Department has drawn up an elaborate plan in accordance with the Election Commission of India’s guidelines to curb the use of liquor power in the elections. While the liquor is supplied to all types of outlets, bars and restaurants, clubs and other watering holes, Illegally Distilled (ID) liquor poses a major challenge to prohibition.

Apart from Non-Duty Paid Liquor (NDPL), the Excise officials have increased vigilance on liquor supplies to check the stocks. Supplies are also set to be regulated and officials will keep a close vigil on locally brewed liquor in the market, especially in rural areas.

The Department has set up Control Rooms including the Office of Deputy Commissioner of Excise, Deputy Superintendent of Excise and in all taluks. The Control Room will check illegal sales, to curb the movement of liquor, illegal procurement, storing and manufacturing.

The public can lodge their complaints by dialling the following numbers if they encounter any illegal activities. The names of the informers and whistle-blowers will be kept a secret.

The Joint Commissioner of Excise has said that the Control Room will be functional till the election process is over. He also urged the public to alert the Department on phones: 0821-2340269 or 98453-82905. The rural Excise Deputy Commissioner’s Office can be contacted on Ph: 0821-2529184 or  1800-4259184.
