New Delhi: Supreme Court said on Friday that it will hear petitions related to stringent package warning rules filed by tobacco industry against the government on Monday. Th apex court also informed that it will also review similar cases filed in recent years.

The legal battle comes amid growing conflict between the government and the tobacco industry, that has sought to delay rules that from April 1 require 85 percent of a cigarette pack`s surface to be covered in health warnings, up from 20 percent.

The Supreme Court said it will hear the case on Monday. It will also review several other cases that challenge how health warnings are printed on tobacco products sold in the country.
