Government sources said that there was no need to revise excise duty for 2016-17 as liquor prices, across various segments, which had been increased by 8-12 per cent in 2014-15.
The AAP government had not increased excise duty on liquor last year, but raised license fee for different categories by around 20 to 30 per cent.
"The government is contemplating not to increase excise duty for the next financial year as we don't see any need for revising the same. The existing system will be so upgraded that the revenue collection will increase," sources said. They said a proposal will soon be prepared in this regard.
