Plain packaging bill in India

| December 4, 2012

A private member’s bill submitted by a member of the parliament of the Indian state of Orissa seeks to have plain packaging imposed on all tobacco products sold throughout the country, according to a story in a recent issue of the BBM Bommidala Group newsletter.

The bill would require that a statutory warning occupy at least 60 per cent of the principal display area of each pack, on which the brand name would appear only once, below the warning and in a font style and size specified by the government.

The bill is likely to be consider during the coming winter session of parliament.
