Display of health warning on tobacco packets reduced to 50%
A parliamentary committee has suggested reduction in the proposed size of health warnings on
cigarette packs, the measure is too harsh on the tobacco packets.
The government had proposed that tobacco makers cover 85 per cent of a cigarette
pack’s display with the health warning. But the parliament committee has suggested in
its report that the warnings be limited to half the size of the cigarette pack to be 50
percent, according to media reports.
