MSIL shop will sell IMFL (Indian Made Foreign Liquor) at MRP rates which are a HIT for Drinkers but at the same time its HITing the business of other liquor sellers in city who sell more than the MRP.

The logic behind the local sellers for above MRP is simple, they need to pay bribes to authorities even if they sell at MRP or above that, hence they charge price above MRP. It is not possible to pay bribes and sell at MRP a local liquor seller said. Around Rs.2000 per month is paid to the authorities by each shop it is said.

A bottle of Beer in a wine shop is sold for Rs.90 against the MRP of Rs.76. 180 ml whisky is sold at Rs.120 against MRP of Rs.97.

So this is a HIT for some and HIT in business for a few. MSIL plans to open a few more shops in the city and the women have already complained to the district authorities in a memorandum not to open more liquor shops. But the govt. will not step behind as it will get more income and the govt. will not want to stop its income flow, let the society go to hell.

The MSIL store on opening day yesterday made sales worth 30 thousand, sources told this blog. In fact as an opening day bonanza one quarter was given for every two and there was queue to buy. Today morning as well even before the shop opened at 10 people were seen around to buy.

The authorities said that the shop was opened so that the public is benefited by the sale of liquor at reasonable prices.

The govt. cares to sell liquor at reasonable prices but does not care about Onions at Rs.20/kg, Sugar at Rs.36/kg.

Does the govt. want al should drink liquor and fill the exchequer, isn’t this promotion of drinking.

  4. If we as a citizen are not careful, then we shall have to pay for Rs100/- per ltr of drinking water, forget the liquor. If you look few years back, Playwin lottery was banned, in the name of protecting interest of the poor and farmers. Till the opening of this outlet they used to drink packet now they will drink IMFL and make Namma Karunaadu very very proud.
