The proceedings were completed through e-tenders by  issuing a phased program for renewal/lottery and executing liquor shops.

In total, 32 districts were executed where more than 75% of the revenue was received through  renewal/lottery. It is also noteworthy that in 7 districts, disposal of all the groups were  completed through Renewal/Lottery.52% of the state’s revenue was ensured through  renewal/lottery, while 48% was ensured via e-tenders.

In order to ensure the maximum revenue generation in the districts lacking renewal/lottery,  groups were reorganized in various ways after receiving proposals from the District Execution  Committee. In this sequence, based on the proposal received from the District Committee,  single groups were formed in the first tender phase in 08 districts and groups were reorganized  in other districts.

In the first phase, tenders were received in 4-districts out of total 8 districts where single group  were formed, which were more than the reserve price. In the performance of these 04 districts,  a total increase of 18.57% was obtained from the annual price of last year.
