Bombay Prohibition Act, 1949

The Gujarat high court was moved after the state government restricted transfer of property among two members of Hindu community by citing the Disturbed Areas Act, which aims at restraining member of one faith from selling property to member of another religion without prior government permission in the notified area. According to the provisions under Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporation BPMC Act, , the onus lies on the field staff of a local body to identify and report illegal constructions to their superior officers, who, in turn, will have to demolish these illegal properties. In dry Gujarat where the prohibition act was made more stringent last year, law enforcers have failed to secure justice for themselves after they could not prove their case against a bootlegger. While a common man faces prison term of up to life imprisonment if convicted for abetting accused involved in manufacture of spurious liquor that caused death of any person, a police officer or government officer convicted for the same offence could get maximum punishment of seven years, as per the latest amendments in Gujarat Prohibition Act. Gujarat governor O P Kohli has approved the amendment to the Prohibition Act which was passed by the state assembly a few days ago. The party-loving Surtis are a worried lot ever since police recently raided a party at a farmhouse in Vadodara and detained over people for allegedly violating the Gujarat Prohibition Act. The Surat rural police on Wednesday booked six junior cops, who were suspended on Tuesday, under various sections of the Prohibition Act for allegedly helping bootleggers accused in the hooch death cases.
