There are approximately 14 million people in India who are dependent on alcohol and greater than 50% who consume alcohol fall into the category of hazardous drinking. The National Mental Health Survey of India 2015–16 found the prevalence of AUDs to be 9% in adult men and alcohol-attributable fraction (AAF) of all causes of deaths was found to be 5.4%.
This has led to various behaviour, mental and physical disorders attributed to alcohol such as increase in domestic abuse, road accidents, financial problems, cancer, neurological, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, and muscular disorders.
