Ban on Gutkha consumption at public places in Himachal soon to come into force!

Shimla has been ranked as the second 'Smoke Free City' in India after Chandigarh. Himachal government banned smoking at all public places and heavy fine was charged from those not abiding by the rules. Now in another step to keep Himachal clean, green and healthy the government will soon ban consumption of 'Gutkha' at all public places in Himachal.

Health department is in progress to bring this rule of banning Gutkha at public places into force as soon as possible. Presently, selling of Gutkha within an area of 100 yards in all Himachal educational institutions is banned.A draft is being prepared by Health Department which will soon be sent to the government to ban Gutkha consumption at public places. Though the news may be undesirable for the people who are addicted to Gutkha but it is in fact a fantastic move by Himachal government to maintain the sanctity of the State and keep the people healthy.
