After three years, the Tamil Nadu State Marketing Corporation Ltd (Tasmac) will be increasing liquor prices across the State. The increase varies from ₹10 to ₹12 (per 180 ml). There will be no increase in beer prices.

A senior government official told The Hindu: “The minutes of the meeting and the order is ready and will be issued any time this week. We are waiting for the final approval to release the order.” He added that this was a routine hike which happened once in three years. The Tamil Nadu government had increased liquor prices in November 2014.

In the ordinary category, a consumer would have to pay ₹100 for a 180 ml, up by ₹12. In the medium category, the price has been increased by ₹10 for a 180 ml bottle, pushing up the price to ₹110. The premium liquor category with a price range of ₹120 to ₹380 (depending on the brand) will see an increase of ₹10 (per 180 ml). As per quality, liquor is divided into three categories: Ordinary, medium and premium. “The price has been fixed similar to 2014 and 2011. We have followed the same pattern,” the government official said.
