It amended the Cigarettes and other Tobacco Products (Packaging and Labelling) Amendment Rules, 2008.It prescribed that health warnings covering 85 percent of principal display on both sides of the packets apply to all tobacco brands, cigarettes, beedis and non-smoking tobacco.Out of 85 percent principal display area, 60 percent of the package should cover pictorial health warnings and 25 percent should cover textual health warnings The warning shall be positioned on the top edge of the package and in the same direction as the information on the principal display area.Textual health warning shall appear in not more than two languages used on the package.The specified health warning shall be rotated every twenty-four months from the date of commencement of these rules.The rules were opposed by the tobacco lobby with several Indian tobacco product companies deciding to stop production from 1 April 2016.  As per the Tobacco Institute of India, whose members account for 98 percent of cigarette manufactured in India, the move will result in an estimated daily loss of 350 crore rupees to the tobacco industry.
