Under the new excise policy of the Uttar Pradesh government, Indian made foreign liquor will now also be sold in Aluminum cans, making UP the first state in the country to do so.

The Aluminum cans packaging will have a positive effect on the environment and according to the Principal Secretary, Excise Department, Sanjay Bhoosreddy it will also put an end to the problem of adulteration of alcohol.

The cans will also come cheaper than the glass bottles which are currently being used.

Under the new excise policy, the proposal for selling country-made liquor in tetra packs has also received the go-ahead
