Pros and Cons of Prohibiting Alcohol in India

212684Banning alcohol in India has been one of the major issues since many years. Authorities need to consider the influence of regulatory frameworks, and the social and economical forces to be able to make a condemnatory analysis. Prohibiting alcohol is a subject of healthy debate under the grounds of its benefits and shortcomings. The most direct consequences of banning are on the demand and supply side of the commodity. Prohibition leads to rising in the distribution costs as suppliers in the illegal market face legal punishments for producing, supplying and selling alcohol beverages. People may stop consuming alcohol as they have to pay legal penalties for possession.

From the legal view point

Prohibiting alcohol reduces the demand if consumers exhibit respect for new regulations, and increases both violent and non-violent crime. People in an illegal trade can’t use the legal and judicial system to resolve disputes, so they definitely follow other methods such as violence. Enforcement of ban is nothing but decreased resources for enforcement of non-prohibition laws, which entails reduced deterrence of crime. Prohibitions may increase income-generating crime by raising prices if consumers finance the alcohol consumption from such crime.  Banning alcohol gives black market suppliers an incentive to corrupt the law enforcement officials and politicians.

The impact on the economy

A ban on alcohol is impractical and offers an illegal platform for participants. Alcohol beverages can be easily produced when compared to drugs, and can be easily sold to the consumers from all communities. The opportunity cost of banning alcohol is the income that can be derived in the form of taxes and duties. It not only infringes the civil liberties of the citizens, but also causes great financial loss to the government. People may face problems with unemployment that in turn affects the economy of the nation. A ban on alcohol would take away a major source of revenue which can be used for public services.

The Impact on the social health

Prohibiting alcohol offers many significant benefits to the society. People can lead a meaningful life with no mental and physical health issues. It strengthens the personal relationships among family members.  Psychological studies have shown that a large number of children from alcohol abuse families face problems like loneliness, guilt, fear of abandonment, low self-esteem and chronic depression. These problems can be overcome by prohibiting alcohol. It also allows people to stay away from underlying diseases that can cause from alcohol addiction, and reduces the financial burden caused by health problems among the alcoholics.
