Replacing holographic stamp in liquor with barcoded stamps can be easily counterfeited: ASPA

ASPA has claimed that UP excise department's move to replace holographic liquor tax stamps with plain barcoded stamps can be easily counterfeited and can lead to ill-fated hooch tragedie.

The Authentication Solution Providers' Association (ASPA) has claimed that the Uttar Pradesh excise department's move to replace holographic liquor tax stamps with plain barcoded stamps can be easily counterfeited and can lead to ill-fated hooch tragedies.

The association has directed the state government to review the existing excise policy and to implement a solution recommended by experts and bodies of the global anti-counterfeiting industry. 

In compliance with the move to implement track and trace technology according to the state's 2018-19 excise policy, the Department of Excise, Uttar Pradesh, replaced secured holographic liquor tax stamps with plain bar coded stamps devoid of any physical security features.

UK Gupta, President of ASPA, said, "We request the state government and state excise to review the existing excise policy and implement a solution that is recommended by experts and bodies of the global anti-counterfeiting industry. This will help in ensuring consumer safety, easy identification of genuine products, plugging leakages in supply chain and enhancing revenue for the exchequer."
