Ban on liquor will hit 1 million jobs

Supreme Court’s decision of liquor ban is a positive step in many aspects like road accidents, road crimes etc.

But according to the tweet of Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said that the liquor ban will hit 1 million jobs. “Tourism creates jobs. Why kill it? Supreme Court’s highway liquor ban verdict may hit 1 million jobs,”

From 1st April 2017 sale of liquor has been banned within 500 meters of national and state highways. Many leading hotels like Taj, Oberoi etc. stop serving alcohol.

As said every positive step has some negative effects too. States of the country will lose tax revenue of approx Rs. 50000 crore, bar, restaurant, hotel, shops and model shops will have to bear the loss of Rs. 20000 – Rs. 25000 crore  and approx 1 million people become jobless.
