Bihar makes changes to its Prohibition Law. Find out what it is

  • The Bihar Cabinet has approved changes to the state’s liquor prohibition law to make it less stringent.

  • These changes primarily focus on making the law less strict for first time offenders and those caught carrying alcohol in lesser quantities in smaller non-commercial vehicles.

  • The law was enforced in April 2016, banning the manufacturing, sale, and consumption of liquor.

  • The new amendments propose that small non-commercial vehicles caught carrying small quantities of alcohol can be released after penalties are imposed.
