It spawned the underworld The city responded to the law with its characteristic opportunism, and one-time thugs and smugglers switched livelihoods.

In Mumbai, Prohibition had to be steadily scaled back into a licence raj as implementation failed and bootleggers turned gangsters, sparking a law-and-order situation.

Gangs formed and allied with one another to protect their territories. Their grip on the city, their ruthless wars and the deep inroads they made into local law enforcement would last decades. The growing lawlessness and the loss of scores of lives at a time from hooch tragedies pushed the state to alter its law and Prohibition would eventually morph into the licence raj.

But it was only in the late s and early s, as the market opened up, that the illicit trade dwindled.
