  • Alcohol Consumption in India as per NFHS 2019- 2021 report

    The National Family Health Survey 2019-2021 report has revealed statistics on alcohol consumption in various states across the country. Arunachal Pradesh has topped the list for both men and women in terms of liquor consumption.

    Telugu states, particularly Telangana, have a long-standing affinity with alcohol. Telangana’s alcohol production and consumption have increased dramatically under the present government rule. The tremendous expansion in the number of wine shops and bars, real estate money, costly festivals, marriages, and parties all helped to normalize alcohol consumption in Telangana families. Andhra Pradesh, on the other hand, did not cross its borders during Jagan’s reign. People in Andhra Pradesh can’t obtain their booz easily since Jagan’s administration restricts and regulates the sale of alcohol, and the increased prices of alcohol have had a significant impact on the state’s declining alcohol proportion.

    Take a look at the statistics
