Delhi thinking of selling tobacco short

| June 3, 2014

The Delhi government plans to introduce a scheme whereby no tobacco or related products would be sold on the last day of each month, according to a story in The Times of India.

The story said that the scheme was aimed at generating awareness about tobacco’s harmful effects and reducing tobacco use, but it was not clear whether the scheme was to be a voluntary one or one backed by regulation.

“This concept started in 2013 when we asked vendors not to sell tobacco and related products on the last day of every month as a voluntary effort,” Dr. N.V. Kamat, director, health services, was quoted as saying.

He added that he hoped Delhi would become a tobacco-free state.
