Excise Duty on liquor & tobacco sales is one of the largest source of revenue for most state governments. Many distilleries under-declare liquor sales to evade excise duty, causing losses worth hundreds of crores to the government. Until recently, there was no way to identify by looking at a bottle whether or not excise duty on it has been paid. Some state governments had introduced printed paper stamps some time back, but these were copied easily by counterfeiters, thus defeating the purpose. Veritech has addressed this issue by developing a High-Security Holographic Excise Seal. It is virtually impossible to copy since it contains many overt, covert as well as forensic security features. Each of these seals has a unique serial number through which each bottle is trackable. One of the essential elements of this seal is that it is tamper-evident. Once the seal is affixed on a bottle, it cannot be removed & re-used. These seals can be customized in terms of design & specifications which may vary from state to state.
