The amount charged by the Department for this exclusive right is called the exclusive privilege amount (EPA).

How does 'exclusive privilege system' work?
Each such geographical area (group) carries a certain amount indicative of the revenue potential of the area. (revenue potential, in turn, is determined by the levels of consumption of Liquor) This amount forms the reserve price (RP) for the area or group. It is the base price for inviting competitive bids from Liquor contractors.

Once the bids are decided in favor of the highest bidder, the amount at which the contract is granted is the obtained price and comes to be known as the 'exclusive privilege amount' (EPA) or guarantee amount.

Competitive bids are invited for each of the LPH / bhang group and licenses are' granted in favor of the highest bidder. The obtained price comes to be known as the annual license fee.
