Kerala Cabinet on Wednesday ratified the Kerala Abkari Act Amendment Ordinance 2013 which envisages raising the age for buying and selling liquor from 18 to 21. In the new policy announced last year, the Congress government had promised to raise the age to buy or sell liquor from 18 to 21 in tune with its plan to bring down liquor consumption in the state. Besides, the new amendment would make it mandatory for television and movies to show statutory warnings against liquor consumption .
