The Government was in hurry to open Wine hops so that they can get Revenues , especially when crunch was seen in Revenue collections from various sections post Covid 19.

Experts told Cross Town News that if Government will open more Wine Shops, one it will generate more revenue and secondly will bring Social distancing feature more effectively on ground, as Covid 19 can stay in picture for longer times.

Sources told Cross Town News, that couple of Years ago, J&K Excise department moved a proposal to open more Liquor shops in unserved areas across Jammu province, but nothing concrete has happened on ground.
