Liquor Shop Auction in Rajasthan: A village in Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan has come into the limelight, as a record 5 billion 10 crore bid has been received for contracting government liquor. This has become the most expensive bid ever made for liquor contracts in the state.
Last year, this shop used to touch Rs 65 lakh, but this time the listeners are surprised by the bid of 510 crores. It is also the most expensive bid of liquor shop in the state. Excise officer Chimanlal Meena said that a demand notice has been sent to bidder Kiran Kanwar. He has been written to deposit the money in three days.
According to Excise Officer, Priyanka Kanwar had also bid which finished second. It is being told that the bid went so high due to rivalry between the two families. It is also being said that if the shop cannot be bid, this is why such a high bid has been made, because there is a provision for forfeiture of the heritage amount only if the amount is not deposited. With this, the government will have to bid for the contract again. Now, if the contractor fills such a huge amount, then it will become the most expensive shop in the state. But at present, this matter remains a matter of discussion.
