“The updated proposal of notification is going to bring about clarity in the ambiguity of the use of all forms of chewable tobacco products.

“Even though gutkha was banned in 2012, retailers used to sell the components of gutkha (betel nut and raw tobacco) in separate pouches. People buy them separately, mix them, and turn it into gutkha. Therefore, the purpose of banning gutkha was not served. Then we realised we need to ban all forms of raw chewable tobacco products completely. The earlier proposal was pending because there was no government in Delhi for at least one year,” said Dr SK Arora, additional director health, Tobacco Control Programme, Delhi government.
