As part of ‘Operation Parivartan’, the SEB staff conducted a series of raids and booked 26,461 cases arresting 17,348 persons. They seized and destroyed 3.02 lakh litres of illicit liquor, 1.06 lakh litres of liquid jaggery, and also seized 5.18 lakh kg of black jaggery along with 1,173 vehicles.

They had also conducted raids on authorized liquor outlets registering 6,490 cases and arresting 6,500 persons. They had seized 16,231 litres of non-duty paid liquor and 391 bottles of beer along with 293 vehicles.

In an attempt to provide them with alternative livelihood, 1485 families were given loans worth Rs 11.15 crore to seek alternative employment. He announced that so far out of 2,196 villages, 1,096 villages were converted to illicit liquor-free villages.

The Preventive Detention Act was promulgated against 101 persons who are indulging in serious crimes of brewing illicit liquor and smuggling NDP liquor and sent them to prison without bail for one year.

Ravisankar announced that the SEB has been planning to conduct awareness programmes in colleges and universities to discourage students from using drugs. A toll-free number 14500 was introduced to lodge complaints about drug use and peddling. The SEB personnel were given rewards, medals and rolling trophies based on their performance.
