Topic Description:

The Prohibition of Electronic Cigarettes (Production, Manufacture, Import, Export, Transport, Sale, Distribution, Storage, and Advertisement) Ordinance, 2019.

In recent times, the use of e-cigarettes has become a popular alternative to cigarettes. The difference between the two is that e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco and therefore are not regulated under the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act, 2003. Rising concerns on the health risks posed by e-cigarettes have led to the promulgation of an Ordinance banning their production, export, advertisement, and storage in India.
