The government completely banned E-Cigarettes in India on 18th Of September, 2019. But that’s not it.
Nirmala Sitharaman Said, “The production, manufacturing, import or export, transport, sale, distribution, storage and advertising related to e-cigarettes are banned”.
E-Cigarettes Banned and punishment if found consuming
The government said that there will be punishment of 1 Year or 1 Lakh ₹ fine or even both after the first offense.
If found guilty for the second time the punishment will be 3 years in jail or 5 lakh fine or both.
E-Cigarettes are bad, but are they as bad as cigarettes with tobacco?
Out of 7000 chemicals in normal cigarettes containing tobacco, 250 are harmful chemicals and 69 are known to cause cancer.
The government sure can’t ban these cigarettes as they are the source of high tax revenue for them.
But they banned E-Cigarettes which do not contain any tobacco elements.
Maybe it should have these elements then the government might consider allowing them.
Was this another move to divert the public attention from the real issues
India’s GDP has a record low 5% and the finance minister sure didn’t seem to have any reasonable explanation for the same.
But she blames millennials for using Ola and Uber. It’s like the food industry fell because people were on a diet.
As the news about the E-Cigarettes getting comletely banned in India circulated the media.
The public is surely getting diverted from the real issues of the country which is its falling growth rate.
Here’s what the finance minister had to say about the banned E-Cigarettes
The finance minister, Nirmala Sitharaman stretched on the statement that the youth was getting highly addicted to E-Cigarettes.
And banning it was the need of the moment for the country.
