Madras HC quashes TN govt notification banning gutkha products

Chennai, Jan 25 (UNI) A division bench of the Madras High Court set aside a notification issued by the Food Safety Commissioner in 2018 to ban the sale of tobacco and tobacco products like Gutka, Pan Masala, flavored or scented food products, or chewable food products in Tamil Nadu.
Heading the bench along with Justice K Kumaresh Babu, Justice R Subramanian passed the orders on allowing a batch of writ petitions.
The judges ruled in favour of the petitioners on the ground that the Food Safety Commissioner has no powers under Section 30 (2)(a) of The Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSA), 2006 to issue such a notification to ban the sales of tobacco products permanently.
