Those who buy liquor manufacturing units online are under the radar of the excise department. Excise commissioner of Kerala , Rishi Raj Singh has asked the cyber cell to keep a tab on the people who are buying such equipment through online.
After the new liquor policy was implemented by the UDF government there were reports that there has been a demand for the brewing equipment available through online. Singh, who has been keeping a close watch on such online sites, urged the cyber police to collect the details of the people who have purchased such equipment in the state.
This apart, the excise commissioner has also decided to take action against such online sites which are promoting brewing equipment. Now, fearing action from the excise department and the state police, several online trade sites have started withdrawing such equipment.
