New Delhi: Nearly two months after the deadline for printing harsher, coloured pictorial health warnings on packs of tobacco products, a study in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat has found that over 75 percent of products were still carrying the old visuals, an autonomous health group said here Thursday.The harsher warnings were found to be missing from the products including cigarettes and gutka packets, said the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI).As per the central government notification, the new warnings need to depict coloured graphics of mouth and lung cancer."The results of the study highlight that the tobacco industry continues to violate the law and we need to strengthen enforcement mechanism through inter-departmental partnership at central and also at state level," said Monika Arora, head of health promotion and tobacco control at the PHFI.
