Tobacco advertisement ban goes up in smoke in Himachal

The ban on advertisement of cigarettes and other tobacco products continues to be flouted in the state, especially in rural areas.

Hoardings and billboards promoting tobacco products dot several rural areas in Himachal Pradesh, but the state government continues to turn a blind eye towards these violations.

A study, conducted by Himachal Pradesh Voluntary Health Association (HPVHA) from August to November 2013 and released in February 2014, has revealed that the violations are the most visible in Kangra and Solan; it gave a violate rate of 100% to both the districts.
