Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Friday announced that advertisements of tobacco products would be banned across the state. Studies have shown that tobacco use causes 30,000-40,000 deaths in the state every year.

“The government will take all legal measures to reduce tobacco consumption, such as banning advertisements and increasing taxes. Tax on cigarettes has been raised from 15 to 20 percent in the state budget. This was done to bring down consumption,” Chandy said at a function here on the occasion of World No Tobacco Day.
