New Delhi: After a ban on plastic packaging for tobacco products, and harsher pictorial warnings that come into effect this December, the smokeless tobacco industry is facing the heat again. This time in the form of the new Food Safety Standards Act.
Under the new notification tobacco and nicotine cannot be used as ingredients in any food products.
This latest regulation could cost the Rs 8000 crore gutka industry, given that it has been held to be a food product by the Supreme Court in the Godhavat case ruling.
