 India has been the forerunner in ratification of the public health treaty and was the 7th Country to ratify the Convention in 2004. India ratified the treaty on 27th February 2005 and is therefore obligated to comply with the treaty provisions and its guidelines to reduce tobacco consumption globally. India provided a leadership role in the negotiations of FCTC and was also the Regional Coordinator for the South-East Asia Region.
