“The district Administration has developed a strong mechanism to crackdown on liquor smuggling in the district. We have increased vigilance, nakas, surprise checks and raids.We are also roping in the public as they can be good informants regarding illegal activity in their neighbourhoods,” Dayalan said.

He said the identity of informants will be protected to ensure their safety and security. He added that the district administration will suitably reward an informant whose tip-off leads to seizure.

Dayalan said 24x7 manning of all the entry points is being done by a joint team of police and excise.

The DC added that to check pilferage, activities in distilleries and bottling plants are under scanner, and strict watch is being kept on outward movement of trucks to ensure they carry required documents.
