Online Portal Launched to Report Violation of Ban on E-Cigarettes
  • The portal, www.violation-reporting.in, was launched on July 21, 2023, to facilitate reporting of violations under the Prohibition of Electronic Cigarettes Act, 2019 (PECA).
  • The portal will allow faster action against any reported violations, such as sale, distribution, advertisement, or import of e-cigarettes.
  • The ban on electronic cigarettes was introduced by the Union government in 2019, to protect the younger generation from a new form of toxic addiction. Electronic cigarettes are battery-operated devices that heat a substance containing nicotine and often flavours, to create an aerosol for inhalation.
  • Despite the ban, e-cigarettes continue to be sold on e-commerce sites and retail shops, even to children below 18. Experts working in the area of tobacco control warn that this is a serious threat to public health and urge the authorities to enforce the ban strictly and effectively.
