To compensate for the state’s losses, according to authorities, the Assam government has increased excise duty on liquor by 15% to offset the revenue gained by the reduction in value added tax on gasoline and fuel.
In the state, the tax on expensive liquor would be higher, but there would be no tax on wine, beer, and low-cost brands due to the high present levy and to protect local companies.
