After liquor, Bihar government bans gutka and pan masala

Nitish Kumar led Bihar Government has announced the ban on sale, distribution, storage, manufacture, consumption and publicity of tobacco products like gutka and pan masala. The ban on both packaged and unpackaged edible items containing tobacco content will remain effective for a period of one year.

Last month state government announced complete ban on the sale of any types of liquor in the state, but had allowed sale of Indian Made Foreign Liquor in towns and cities. The alcohol prohibition in India is in force in the states of Gujarat, Nagaland and parts of Manipur as well as in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep. Kerala has been implementing prohibition in a phased manner since 2014.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the state, which has announced the ban on gutka and pan masala products ?
2. Which product has banned earlier in April, 2016 by Bihar government ?
