Delhi government bans all forms of chewing tobacco

download1

The Delhi government has banned chewing tobacco in an effort to lower the high incidence of mouth and throat cancers. The Delhi government ordered the prohibition of the sale, purchase and possession of all forms of chewable tobacco, saying violators can be imprisoned for up to six months and fined up to 300,000 rupees.

Chewable tobacco products reportedly cause 90 per cent of all mouth cancers in India. Tobacco manufacturers won a court stay against earlier bans, but public awareness about the risks has grown and the New Delhi government has vowed to enforce the new ban, which was welcomed by health activists and doctors after it was announced last week.
