India’s First Condom Brand Set for a Sensuous Makeover

Decades after it was introduced as a family planning aid under a government initiative, the subsidised condom Deluxe Nirodh is all set to get more 'intense.

The government will do a major 'rebranding' to give it a 'sensuous look' and perhaps even a new name. A special team has been set up by the health ministry to finalise its rebranding and new packaging.

If the government has its way, the plain Nirodh packets could soon have pictures of couples making love or playing the violin together.

Hindustan Latex Ltd gave a set of "attractive" and "erotic" pictures to the ministry to choose one for the new Nirodh packs, in a presentation on Monday.

Launched as a low-priced lubricated male condom years ago to prevent unwanted pregnancy and for a safe sexual life, Nirodh's decline started when attractive pleasure enhancers became available in the market.

"It was found one reason for its low acceptability is its unattractive packaging. Its quality is as good as others in the market, but the packaging is poor. We hope the new packaging will make a difference. The committee may recommend a new name for Nirodh too," said a health ministry official.
