Mumbai: We may never see our wafers and chips selling in the same store where tobacco products are sold along. Maharashtra Government has decided to follow the directive by the centre which prohibits the sale of tobacco products and food items under FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) category together in the same store. By doing this, the state has become the first in the country to implement such a policy.




The union ministry for health and family had proposed the ban of sale of tobacco and FMCG products under the same roof in September last year, objective being prevention of children exposed to tobacco products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of Maharashtra state has issued an order which confirms that the state will follow the centre’s directive effective January 9. Pallavi Darade, FDA Commissioner said, “The Union government had suggested that tobacco be sold exclusive of FMCG products so that children are not exposed to them. Children could get influenced by tobacco products when go to buy chips or chocolates,”

 

She also hoped that Maharashtra people, after being aware of this order, would comply to it whole-heartedly. However, “there is a provision to cancel licenses and registrations, we may also file a case in civil court which may then lead to an imprisonment of up to six months plus fine,” she warned the potential defaulters.

Considering the survey report released in December 2017 by Global Adult Tobacco Survey Maharashtra, where the tobacco consumption has declined in the last seven years, there is still the concern required with one parameter being increased. The usage of tobacco among 15-17 year old teens has increased from 2.9% in 2010 to 5.5% in 2017, which calls for our attention since it accounts for almost 90% increment. As per a TOI report, there are around 1 Lakh new cases of oral cancer in India every year, out of which 50% of patients die within 12 months. Hence, it becomes a priority for a country like India to step in and keep its citizens away from such hazardous products.
