The illicit liquor leads to many death, reported and unreported, and causes a major problem for the district authorities. The approach till now had been to view it as a law and order problem and tackle it accordingly. Raids, arrest, police cases, and criminal trials-all these had only limited impact. The problem remains as serious as ever. Your inspections show that the parts of the district where the distillation flourishes are economically, industrially and educationally backward. Agriculture is badly affected by poor irrigation facilities. Frequent clashes among communities gave boost to illicit distillation.

Reason for limited result of Govt,-action Tackling problem of illicit distillation and consumption through orthodox policing strategy has yielded limited results. This overall strategy is due to myopic view of the problem and knee jerk reaction to it, instead of tackling Problem in Holistic manner and aiming at its roots.

Firstly, it is essential to change attitude of police and citizen towards each other so they may work in tandem to solve this problem. I will call upon meeting of all police officers and ask them to adopt ethos of Community Policing model. Secondly, will work with other District level officer for the purpose of Improving Irrigation facility, larger penetration of Agricultural insurance scheme like PMFBY in order to reduce farm distress. .
