Mandsaur: A whopping 10% discount will be given on the purchase of liquor to those who have taken both doses of vaccines against Covid-19 in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district. The excise department in the district rolled out an order on Tuesday in a bid to boost vaccination drive in the region.

Sachan said this move is to attract and encourage liquor consumers towards vaccination.

Meanwhile, authorities at Madhya Pradesh’ Khandwa district has tightened the rules to buy liquor from stores. The district excise department earlier this month said consumers will not be allowed to buy alcohol if they are not vaccinated against the coronavirus. “No vaccination proof is required just verbal assurance of being fully vaccinated is enough; those who drink don’t lie,” said Khandwa district excise office RP Kirar.

According to the instructions given in the meeting called by the district administration Khandwa, at present every citizen has to be vaccinated under the mega vaccination campaign being run for the prevention of coronavirus infection in the district. Last week, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan appealed to the people of the state to receive both doses of COVID-19 vaccine and said “vaccine is safe and beneficial for both pregnant women and new mothers.” In a milestone achievement, the total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in India has crossed 117 crores, informed the Central Government on Tuesday.
