In early eighties the Excise Department and the Sales Tax Department existed as “Excise and Taxation Department”. These were segregated into two viz Excise Department and Sales Tax Department each headed by a Commissioner.

 The Excise Department was charged with the responsibility of: -

  • Excise related activities on IMFL.
  • Manufacture of Country Liquor at two bonded warehouse located at Jammu and Srinagar and its sale through departmentally run country liquor vends by the Excise Sub-Inspectors and Excise Guards.
  • Collection of Entertainment duty .
  • Collection of Toll at various Toll Posts.

 

 In the year 1986-87 the sale of country liquor through departmentally run vends was dispensed with and country liquor vends were auctioned. The staff posted at these vends was adjusted here and there without any re-organization.

The operations at the warehouse at Srinagar were stopped due to eruption of militancy. Manufacture of country liquor at erstwhile warehouse at Bikram Chowk Jammu was also stopped in the year 1996-97 and it was entrusted to local distilleries.
