Top NewsWritten by Hina Rohtaki | Chandigarh | Published: March 18 2017 11:57 am A liquor vend on Madhya Marg in Chandigarh (Source: Express Photo by Kamleshwar Singh) Top News IN THE new excise policy for 2017-18 the UT Administration has proposed to adopt lottery system for allocating vends in the city instead of the usual auction method Seeking to abolish the quota system and move to a minimum guarantee model for the sale of cases the UT also proposes to effect a hike of 10-15 per cent in the minimum sale price and excise duty across all the slabs As per the proposed excise policy the administration would charge Rs 75000 per application by way of lottery method By this officials aim to earn a revenue of Rs 75 crore as 100 applications per vend are expected There are a total of 100 vends operating in the city Officials found that the liquor trade through auction money had been operating at thin margins and sales were going below the minimum sale price at times It is proposed that the minimum sale price would be increased by Rs 100 per bottle for Scotch category and Rs 50 per bottle for other categories and Rs 10 for beer “This would add Rs 60 crore to the existing kitty of Rs 230 crore for the trade’s profitability The change would enable Chandigarh to remain competitive with neighbouring states” the proposed policy states The vends would be divided into three categories based on location brand segmentation and previous bid price The UT proposes to abolish the quota system and introduce shop licence fee by which they aim to earn Rs 127 crore per annum “Licence fee for each category be introduced which is to be paid in 10 equal monthly instalments beginning from April to January of shop licence fee Minimum guarantee and shop licence fee for category A would be 8000 cases per annum that is Rs 150 crore as the licence fee here Under category B it would be 6000 cases per annum which is Rs 1 crore as the licence fee and for category C the fee would be Rs 75 lakh with 4000 cases per annum” states the policy This would be the minimum guarantee that would be essential for the vends The category A would be for those vends where bid price was more than Rs 25 crore category B would be from Rs 175 crore to Rs 25 crore and category C would be for the bid price less than Rs 175 crore “No quota of country liquor is to be allocated this time as Chandigarh is an urban centre and can do away with the country liquor adding volumes to IMFL to boost revenue” the policy notes Of the revenue of Rs 238 crore in 2016-17 the potential profit pool from the IMFL was Rs 2254 crore “Increasing duty level across slabs by 10 per proof litre (PL) on Indian made foreign liquor (IMFL) and 5 per bulk litre on the beer” the policy states The excise duty on beer alone will earn Rs 250 crore A senior official of the UT Administration said that the policy would soon be notified Liquor vend owners allege bias Liquor vend owners who will have to shut down their vends on the Madhya Marg and National Highway 21 have alleged bias saying that the hotels and restaurants on this stretch should also be banned from selling liquor Vineet a liquor vend contractor whose two vends in Sector 8 on Madhya Marg and Sector 35 on Himalaya Marg would face closure said “This is unfair The basic aim of the apex court’s judgment is that liquor may not be sold on the highway Then why are these hotels and restaurants located on this stretch allowed to sell it The bars should also be shut down” Vineet has been running the liquor vend in Sector 8 for the last
