Delhi: The government has approved a ban on e-cigarette marketing and production in the country. Officials say that e-cigarette production in India is punishable by its exports, imports, sales, distribution and advertising, and if convicted, it will be punishable by one year of imprisonment and a fine of one lakh rupees.

Moreover, those who store e-cigarettes can be sentenced to six months in prison or a fine of up to Rs 50,000. In some cases they may have to be experienced together. Electronic cigarette use is on the rise among young people today. Until the World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday announced the use of e-cigarette vaping products as extremely dangerous.
