By The Hindu 02-Aug-2019
Chief Secretary S.K. Joshi wanted the officials concerned to put up signage boards indicating no smoking zones in public places across the State. The focus should be on educational institutions, railway stations, hotels, bus stations, government offices, shopping complexes and other public places, he said at a review on Thursday.
The Chief Secretary reviewed the status of implementation of the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act 2003 with senior officials on Thursday.
He wanted the officials to take steps to constitute coordination committees and enforcement teams at district and mandal levels to monitor the sale of tobacco products banned in the State. In addition, efforts should be made to include ill effects of tobacco consumption as a subject in the school curriculum. The meeting discussed about the best practices being implemented in different States and it was decided to ensure effective coordination between different departments and enforcement agencies to significantly bring down consumption of tobacco.
