Another year ban on Gutka and tobacco products in Tamil Nadu!
The Tamil Nadu government has ordered a one-year ban on tobacco products including gutka and paan masala.
In 2018, the then AIADMK government had ordered a ban on gutka, pan masala, chewing tobacco and other products in Tamil Nadu. Subsequently, the Madras High Court quashed the order issued by the Food Safety Commissioner banning tobacco products including Gutka and Pan Masala in January. The Tamil Nadu government appealed to the Supreme Court against this.
The Supreme Court heard the case and stayed the order of the Madras High Court and allowed a new ordinance to be issued to ban tobacco products including gutka and pan masala.
