JAMMU, Nov 20: The Excise department has registered highest ever revenue of Rs. 520.63 crore upto ending October of current fiscal (7 months) against Rs. 460.26 crore collected during the corresponding period of last financial year, marking an increase of 13.101 percent. The department is poised to realize highest ever targeted revenue of Rs. 905.54 crore during the current financial year against Rs. 813.54 crore revenue collected during the last fiscal.
This was stated at a meeting convened today in the Excise and Taxation Complex, Jammu to review the performance of various wings of the Excise department during first seven months of the current fiscal.
The Minister for Finance and Ladakh Affairs, Abdul Rahim Rather presided.

Speaking on the occasion, Rather said greater revenue was imperative for the development of the state. He called upon the officers of Excise Department to work with zeal and dedication for maximum realization of revenue. This, he said, was essential as the tax revenue comprised the major component of the overall revenue of the state. He complimented the officers of the excise department for realizing revenue of Rs. 520.63 crore upto ending first 7 months of the current fiscal, which was Rs. 60.34 crore excess over the previous year's collection upto Rs. 460.26 crore. He exhorted upon the officers to work with, vigour and honesty to surpass all the past achievements in the current financial year.
He was informed that as per orders, the department has started affixation of security Hologram on liquor bottles w.e.f 23rd July, 2012 to put check on smuggled/illicit liquor, if any, in the market. 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. She said that upto ending October, this fiscal, a fine of Rs. 13.52 lakhs has been collected from tax evaders at toll plaza Lakhanpur besides seizure of 6470 pcs of willow clefts, 4000 bottles of corex and 70 gms of opium.
