Janagama is in first place as the district with the highest number of alcohol consumers. According to a report released by the Planning Department, 60.6 percent of the population in the district is under the influence of alcohol. Yadadri Bhuvanagiri and Mahabubabad districts are in second and third positions respectively.


According to the report, 58.4 percent in Bhuvanagiri and 56.5 percent in Mahabubabad are addicted to alcohol. The state has an average alcohol consumption of 43.3 percent, while 22 districts have higher than average state alcohol consumption. Hyderabad, an urban district, has only 28 percent of alcohol consumers in its population.


Officers working in the field say that with the increase in the number of wine shops and the availability of belt shops 24 hours a day, people in villages are getting used to drinking. The number of women taking alcohol has also increased. Seven out of every 100 women in the state drink alcohol on average. 23.8 percent of women in Medak are alcohol consumers. The report is based on a survey of 15-year-plus people in the state.


The expenditure incurred by the people for alcohol is higher than the expenditure incurred by the Government for the health of the people in the State. The government spends an average of Rs 1,600 per person per year on health. People spend an average of Rs 7,695 a year buying alcohol. Liquor sales in the state stood at Rs 30,783 crore in the 2021-22 financial year. If this amount is distributed to 4 crore people in the state, it will come to Rs 7,695 each. If only 43 percent of the people who are addicted to alcohol share it, it will come to over Rs 16,000 per person.
