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.
