The Food Safety department, Manipur destroyed tobacco products worth around Rs 1 lakh in the local market and expired consumable products which were confiscated from different shops located at Ngari Galli, Imphal West. The products were set ablaze at the campus of the Solid Waste Management Plant, Lamdeng, Imphal West by following adequate norms and procedures. It is pertinent to mention here that although the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA), 2003, restricts surrogate advertisement of tobacco companies but it has been seen that these companies failed to bring any impacts on the citizens.
