He said necessary amendments to the excise act will be done next month.

"We need to come out with the notification banning drinking of liquor in public places. The notification will be issued by October end for which we will amend the existing law," Parrikar said at a function in Panaji.

The state government is currently governing the licences to the liquor outlets under Goa, Daman and Diu Excise Act, 1964.

Goa has already announced ban on drinking in selected public places including beaches.

Parrikar said the state government is serious about inculcating the habit of wearing helmets while riding two- wheelers.

He said the police will penalise two-wheeler riders who are driving without helmet and also will tell them the benefits of wearing a helmet while driving.
