Dry States of India
Certain states in India are known as dry states, like Gujarat in the west and Nagaland and Mizoram in the North East, where alcohol is not available. It is illegal to carry alcohol from other states into the dry states.
In the South of the country (Kerala & Tamil Nadu), alcohol is available only in 5 star hotels and their restaurants. These states will ban alcohol altogether in the coming years.
