The notification in this regard was issued on Thursday, she said. The Maharashtra government earns revenue of about Rs 100 crore from the sale of imported scotch annually. The revenue is expected to increase to Rs 250 crore as the sale is expected to go up from one lakh bottles to 2.5 lakh bottles, the official said. The reduction in duty would also curb smuggling of scotch from other states and sale of spurious liquor, she added.
