The Cabinet has approved an amendment proposed to the Excise Ordinance by the Ministry Of Finance And Mass Media to make compulsory the obtaining of a license for Toddy Tapping from Coconut and Palmyrah Trees.

Although the license should be required for Toddy tapping under the Excise Ordinance  it was later amended in 2013 by excluding Coconut,Kitul and Palmyrah trees from licensing system and as a result the Excise department has faced difficulty to monitoring the volume of  Toddy produced as distilleries when collecting Excise duty.

Although license is compulsory for Toddy tapping from Coconut and Palmyrah trees according to the new amendment ,the excluding of  Kitul Tree when obtaining a license for  Toddy tapping remains same according to the authorities.
