Strong and sustainable measures needs to be incorporated both by civic administration and public health departments for its forceful implementation.

Alarming increase in the use of tobacco among children, adults and other vulnerable sections of societies represents a great concern to public health local and the national level. Tobacco is becoming one of the single biggest causes of death worldwide. India is especially impacted by tobacco epidemic with its geographically diverse and heterogeneous smokeless and smoking forms of tobacco use.

There are almost million tobacco users in India. Effective comprehensive tobacco control laws that can impact reduced consumption are needed.

Tobacco legislation in India dates back to when the Cigarettes Regulation of Production, Supply, and Distribution Act, was enacted, which made it mandatory to display a statutory health warning on all packages and advertisements of cigarettes.

The Cigarettes Act, , failed to accomplish much because it was not comprehensive in its coverage and was feeble in its provisions. Again in one its major steps towards antitobacco movement in the state, the Government of Maharashtra banned manufacturing, sale and distribution of gutka and pan masala, by getting both these items classified as food to come under the purview of the Food Safety and Standards Act FSSA.

The ban came into force in July and was successfully upheld by the Bombay High Court for a further extension of one-year till July in Maharashtra.

Among the many provisions with in COTPA our study looked into the compliance to implementation and enforcement of Section 5 and Section 6 of the COTPA legislation with respect to point of sale advertisement of tobacco, prohibition of sale of tobacco products to and by minors and prohibition of tobacco products selling outlets within yards of the selected educational institutes EI , including compliance to the gutka and pan masala ban in Mumbai.

Design In order to achieve the above objectives, EI within the Mumbai metropolitan region were selected in a two stage random sampling process to conduct the study.

Six administrative wards were randomly selected and EI imparting secondary and higher secondary education within each of these randomly selected wards was enumerated obtaining the list of these institutes from the Education department of Mumbai Municipal Corporation. One EI each from each of these six administrative wards was selected by random sampling to be representative of the population and region.
