Speaking on the occasion, Rather said greater revenue was imperative for the development of the state.

The Excise Holograms are being affixed by local Distilleries and Bottling Plants on production of liquor as well as on liquor imported into the state from 23rd July, 2012. The Hologram has 14 overt and covert features and is considered as one of the best Holograms in the country.
While making power point presentation about the enforcement activities of the department, the Excise Commissioner informed that 107 persons were arrested in 2009 raids and 37249 kgs of Lahan destroyed upto October, 2012 with a penalty of Rs. 18.15 lakhs recovered from the offenders.
