Lack of state and federal-level regulatory framework for alcohol sales limits opportunities in the sector.
Trade barrier summary
There is a lack of a harmonised regulatory framework across states, and at federal level, for labelling, distribution, registration, licensing, excise and other tax and charge requirements for exporting alcohol. This prevents challenges for UK exporters and domestic businesses. Alcohol is currently not covered under goods and services tax (GST) in the Indian market.
