The Kerala Cabinet approved on Wednesday the annual Plan for the coming year, pegged at Rs.17,000 crore which lay emphasis on higher education, healthcare, and social welfare.

The Cabinet sanctioned Rs.20.28 crore for building a stadium at Mundayar, near Kannur, for the National Games and approved the memorandum and articles of association for the proposed State Housing Development and Finance Corporation.

The Cabinet decided to recommend to the Governor the promulgation of an ordinance to amend the Kerala Abkari Act. It seeks to increase the gallonage fee payable by the Kerala State Beverages Corporation to the government, besides banning sale of liquor to people below the age of 21 years. (Currently, liquor can be sold to persons above 18 years of age.) The ordinance will make it mandatory for all visual media, including films, to show statutory warning when showing scenes of people consuming liquor.
