The West Bengal government to provide an impetus to breweries in the state has reduced duty slabs and permitted the production of non-alcoholic malt beverages. The West Bengal government has introduced a non-alcoholic beer policy.

“Introduction of NAB policy being a first-of-its-kind in India will help global companies to come with more investment towards west Bengal. Currently entire demand for NAB is being met completely through imports and not being manufactured within India,” Kumar said.

“We are going to set up the first de-alcoholizer module in India. This model is being imported from Sweden and 50 crore is being invested in this module along with peripherals,” he said.
