"Tobacco companies have been given ample time to ensure the new picture warnings on tobacco packs. A snap survey of 40-50 retail outlets by VHAI revealed that no cigarette, gutka or bidi packets have the new picture warnings," said Bhavna Mukhopadhyay, executive director, Voluntary Health Association of India.
