Government In India Makes Firmer Graphic Warnings Compulsory For All Tobacco Products

The Indian government has notified that all inclusive graphic warnings are to be added to all types of tobacco products, including the smoking and smokeless ones. However, it is known that the government has set 1st April 2013 as the cut-off date for this new implementation.

According to a notification released by the health ministry, a set containing three graphic warnings for smokeless and smoking forms of tobacco are to be highlighted on tobacco product packages. These pictorial images are likely to substitute the images already present on the packages of tobacco products.
