Director (Local Government) Priyank Bharti has directed municipal officials to check all the shops selling tobacco in their respective areas and order immediate closure if they are being run without the required permit.

Principal health secretary Vini Mahajan said that sale of chewable tobacco and loose cigarettes has already been banned in Punjab and a commercial establishment's license could be revoked if it violates the Tobacco Control Act.
