Delhi bans chewable tobacco for a year

Delhi bans chewable tobacco for a year
16 April 2016 Current Affairs: The Delhi government has banned for one year the sale, purchase and storage of all forms of chewable tobacco, including guthka, pan masala, khaini and zarda, in the Capital.The Department of Food Safety on Thursday issued a notification in this regard on Wednesday.According to the notification, unpackaged products of chewable tobacco, too, are within the ambit of the ban.Stating that tobacco is known to cause adverse impact on health of consumers and could also lead to alteration of the genetic make-up of future generations, the notification.The manufacture, storage, distribution, or sale of tobacco which is either flavoured, scented or mixedand whether going by the name or form of guthka, pan, masala, flavoured/scented tobacco, kharra, or otherwise whether packaged or unpackaged and/or sold as one product, or though packaged as separate products, sold or distributed in such manner so as to easily facilitate mixing by the consumer is prohibited for a period of one year.Previously a notification was issued by Delhi government in September, 2012, in pursuance of a series of directions from Supreme Court for a ban on 'guthka' in the city. But since the term 'gutkha' was used in that notification, tobacco retailers started selling the components of 'guthka' (betel nut and raw tobacco) in separate pouches, thus defeating the purpose behind the ban.
