Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today issued notice to the Centre in response to a PIL seeking prohibition on manufacture, sale and marketing of smokeless tobacco products like gutkha, zarda, pan masala, khaini and gudakhu which contain harmful nicotine. A division bench of Justice Pradeep K Mohanty and Justice S K Mishra gave an order to issue notices to the Centre when the petitioner, Centre for Legal Aid to Poor, a voluntary organisation, filed an amended petition as was allowed last week. The Centre has been asked to file the counters within four weeks and the matter would come up for further adjudication after that, the petitioner`s lawyer Janmenjaya Katakia said.
