The minister said that during the last lockdown, we have tried this kind of experiment once. All shops are currently closed. Along with this, liquor shops have also been closed. In such a situation, its smuggling incidents from neighboring states are increasing. Although our police has stopped it, the smugglers are looking to consume illegal liquor in the state. He claimed that online sales of alcohol would be completely transparent.
How to book alcohol online
In the first round of Corona, when the previous lockdown was imposed, the Congress government of Chhattisgarh sold liquor online. The government is going to adopt the same formula once again. Like before, this time too, it will be booked with an app named csmcl online, in which customers will have to give their mobile number, Aadhaar card and full address. Its payment will be online, but the delivery charge can be up to 100 rupees.
