Regulator in offing for imposition of anti-tobacco law

A National Tobacco Regulatory Authority (NTRA) will impose existing anti-tobacco laws in India.

Despite a ban on smoking in public places, people are frequently seen puffing away in restaurants, hotels and theatres.

Another major concern is the mushrooming of cigarette shops within 100 metres of a school, or tobacco products being sold to children.

"The National Tobacco Regulatory Body, being set up by the Union health ministry, will impose all existing anti-tobacco laws stringently. It will also test samples of chewing and smokeless tobacco products for harmful substances," an official told TOI.
