The State saw a record sale of liquor via government-owned outlets on New Year’s eve. As per Bevco provisional figures, customers bought liquor worth ₹82.26 crore on December 31 as against the ₹70.55 crore sold on the same day last year. An official said the revenue increase was also partly due to the enhanced price of liquor.
