Tamil Nadu ups the legal limit of storing liquor at home

The rules pertaining to storing liquor at home are nebulous and vary between states. Here’s the latest on Tamil Nadu as reported in The Economic Times.

The Tamil Nadu government has increased the legal limit of storing alcohol at home to 12 bottles (750ml) of hard liquor, six each of Indian-made foreign liquor and imported spirits. According to the revised norms by the state commissionerate of prohibition and excise this June, you may also stock 12 bottles of beer (650ml) and an equal number of bottles of wine at home. The new high kicked in after an amendment to the Tamil Nadu Alcohol (Possession for Personal Consumption) Rules, 1996.
