"The manufacture, storage, distribution, or sale of tobacco which is either flavored, scented or mixed... and whether going by the name or form of gutka, pan, masala, flavored/scented tobacco, kharra, or otherwise... whether packaged or unpackaged and/or sold as one product, or though packaged as separate products, sold or distributed in such manner so as to easily facilitate mixing by the consumer is prohibited for a period of one year, the notification stated."

The ban was enforced keeping in mind that the 'item' if consumes will endanger human health and well-being and whereas if consumption of these food articles is allowed without prohibition, the well-being of current and future generations will be compromised.
