Pic­tures of dead ba­bies, throat cancer and rot­ten teeth are likely to ap­pear on cig­a­rette pack­ets. The Health min­istry said the graphic warn­ings on the dan­gers of smok­ing, in­clud­ing of punc­tured throats and cancerous lungs, will be printed on all cig­a­rette packs. The To­bacco Con­trol Reg­u­la­tions, 2014, re­quire both pic­to­rial and text health warn­ings printed on the pack­ets. Also known as plain pack­ag­ing, the move aims at dis­suad­ing cur­rent and po­ten­tial smok­ers by giv­ing them in­for­ma­tion on the harm­ful ef­fects of nico­tine and tar.
