Excise department told to increase sale of Indian liquor

The Fiscal Management Review Committee (FMRC) headed by Chief Secretary Subash Chandra Khuntia, on Friday, asked the Excise department to take proactive measures to increase the sale of Indian Made Liquor (IML) in the state.

The panel, which has made certain recommendations to the government after reviewing the fiscal and debt position of the state, has observed that sale of IML has reduced in the state compared to the neighbouring states.

Registration of motor vehicles too has dipped in the past few years, the panel stated and asked the Transport department to rationalise the tax structure and resolve issues related to lifetime tax in order to improve the registration.

The committee has cautioned the government on ballooning expenditure commitments, mainly on account of crop loan waiver, and advised it to take necessary measures to increase its revenue.
