This book provides the critical appraisal of the Anti Smoking Law in India. It is an accident that tobacco is a legal drug. It is ten times more dangerous than heroin. Tobacco is the only consumer product which is grown and legally available and is fatal for human beings. Over the globe, it is considered as the major public health hazard. In India millions of people dies annually due to the direct or indirect consumption of tobacco. Article 21 of the Constitution of India,1950 ensures Right to life. It guarantees the pollution free environment where one can breathe in and live dignified life. Smokers not only destroys their own lives but indirectly destroys the life of passive smokers and pollute environment as well. The present anti smoking law is vague. The endeavour has been made in this book to point out the loopholes in framing, interpretation and implementation of this law. There is a dire need of comprehensive and unambiguous anti smoking law in India. By which secondhand smoking and environment pollution can be completely eliminated from the society.
