There are 4,380 liquor shops all over the state and the YSRCP government would be reducing them to 3,500 by October and Andhra Pradesh State Beverages Corporation Ltd (APSBCL) will be taking complete control of liquor sales in the state.
Also the sales of alcohol are going to be with conditions. No person can buy more than three bottles while the sales are restricted from 10 AM to 9 PM only. Apart from this the government has allotted a budget of Rs 500 crore for setting up de-addiction centres and others which are yet to get a shape.
Overall it appears that YS Jagan led YSRCP government is seriously working on its poll promise on alcohol prohibition. But the government will lose a lot of revenue through it.
