After Liquor, Now Paan Masaala, Gutka Banned In Bihar

PATNA || In yet another brave move that is set to go a long way in improving the health of people in Bihar, specially the youth and men, the Bihar government on Friday ordered a blanket ban on sale and manufacture of paan masala and gutka in the state. The ban which came into immediate effect will be enforced initially for a period of one year, an official said.

Sale of alcohol is already banned by the Nitish Kumar led government in Bihar for a long time now. Officials said many items that are used in manufacture of paan masala, including magnesium carbonate are detrimental to human health and hence the prompt decision to ban the paan masaala and gutka in the state.
