India Bans Smoking in public places!
India has banned smoking in public places from today(2nd Oct) in an attempt to fight tobacco which is blamed for the death of a fifth of all deaths in India.Offenders will be fined 200 Rupees.
Everyone agrees, that implementing the ban could be a problem and much will depend on compliance rather than enforcement.
How effective is enforcement going to be in the largest democracy of the world???
Could this lead to a rise in corruption associated with the police???
