Kolkata: The state government has decided to open liquor stores to remove the economic condition of the state. Bengal is in a debt trap, and chief minister Mamata Banerjee is desperately looking for ways to shore up its tax revenues.
According to Nabanna sources, State govt decided to open liquor shops in all corners of the state. Apart from the retail sales store, the government has also planned to open bars in future.
The decision was made mainly to increase in revenue. Last year, the state government earned seven thousand eight hundred crores from excise duty. The tender will be called for opening this shops. But businessmen should have a valid license to start this shops.
