In India, the rules and regulations related to sale, possession, and consumption of alcohol is a state matter. Some states in the country like Gujarat, Nagaland, and, more recently, Bihar, have strictly banned the sale and consumption of alcohol within the state’s boundaries. In Manipur and Lakshadweep, alcohol is banned locally in some areas. Kerala also has some restrictions imposed on the sale and consumption of alcohol. In other states of India , there is no ban on alcohol. In a few states, a dry day is observed during special festivals while the entire nation observes dry days during elections or some national holidays like Gandhi Jayanti (the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi).
