Punjab Excise dept app to ensure foolproof check on sale of illicit, counterfeit liquor in Punjab



The Excise department in Punjab has launched a mobile app to ensure foolproof checks on sale of counterfeit and illicit liquor.

Excise and Taxation Minister Harpal Singh Cheema on Friday launched the ‘Excise QR Code Label Verification Citizen App’ as part of a ‘track-and-trace’ project being implemented by the department.

Launching the application at the Excise and Taxation Bhawan here, Cheema said, “This QR code-based mobile app is a further step in the direction of ensuring that no in-genuine, counterfeit or no-duty-paid liquor can be sold in Punjab.”

The consumer-friendly initiative will help create another check on excise duty evasion, he added.
