Earlier Aug 22, hearing a petition on banning the sale of tobacco, the Delhi High Court had asked the government to take a decision on the matter in two weeks.

The plea was filed by a registered society - Doctors for You.

"After issuing a notification, manufacturing, sale and other activities with respect to gutka and other related products would be banned. The violation of this would attract strict action," the official added.

The prevention of food adulteration department has been authorised to collect samples and register cases against traders and manufacturers violating the ban.

"Delhi government feels that the ban had become necessary to overcome health hazards and has taken the decision without bothering about huge loss (in terms of taxes) after enforcing ban on such products," the official said.
