Since the wines shops have been opened in Indian after a strict 40-day lockdown period, there has been a huge uproar in social media. Many people suggested that people who are purchasing liquor in Wine shops amid those higher prices shouldn’t be given any benefits announced by the government in this lockdown period.
Though its a far fetched desire, one decision from an excise officer is not lesser than a huge shock to the drunkards. Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad district Excise officer Abhishek Tiwari has opted indelible ink to keep off people purchasing liquor.
“The indelible ink is being applied to the index finger of buyers coming to purchase liquor, in Hoshangabad district. It’s being done to trace people in the near future if needed,” Tiwari said.
Besides that, a register has been placed in all liquor shops and the people are asked to write down all their details such as name, address, and mobile number. Though the 50 shops in the containment zones have been opened, no rush has been witnessed in that region and this application of inedible ink is a very smart move from the officer to keep things intact in this critical phase.
