Bill to allow tobacco companies to promote their products

P align= “Justify”>This means tobacco companies can promote their products at the points of purchase. The offence of advertising tobacco products shall be punishable, in the case of the first conviction, with imprisonment for up to three years or a fine of up to Rs 100,000.

A second conviction will invite imprisonment for up to three years or a maximum fine of Rs 200,000 or both.

The Bill prescribes a similar punishment for the offence of failing to mention the statutory warning and the nicotine and tar content on the pack, the only difference being that the first conviction would be punishable with imprisonment for up to three years or a maximum fine of Rs 100,000 or both. The offences will be bailable.
