India's indoor smoking bans

India is the third largest market for cigarettes, with up to 250 million smokers, and opposition to the ban
is fierce. India's major cigarette manufacturer, ITC Ltd, will go to the supreme court in November seeking
to overturn the legislation. The reason for their anguish is simple: India has been sited that the country
where sales of tobacco products have increased. It is estimated that 102 billion cigarettes are sold every
year. Dr. Ramadoss, the Minister of Health and Family Welfare in India, who also campaigns against
alcohol, drugs and fast food, remains unrepentant. The government says that a fifth of all deaths in India
is smoking-related.

India introduced a public smoking ban.

India's smokers were today encouraged to stub out their cigarettes as the world's biggest public smoking ban
came into effect. Smoking kills the estimated one million people every year. The Indian government decided
to take action to enforce a smoking ban, to clamp down on a habit. The penalty is a fine of 200 rupees, that
is more than the average person's daily wage. However, Reuter disclosed in May 2013, that smokers ignore
India's public smoking ban with a photography of smoking inside of a train. It is known that the
restriction in India is incomplete with a low enforcement.
