National tobacco control programme

National tobacco control programme

The National Tobacco Control Programme (NTCP) is a government initiative in India aimed at controlling the use of tobacco and reducing the burden of tobacco-related illnesses. The program was launched in 2007 and is implemented by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The following are the key components of the National Tobacco Control Programme:

  1. Awareness Campaigns: The program conducts awareness campaigns through various media channels to educate people on the harmful effects of tobacco use and promote the benefits of quitting tobacco.
  2. Tobacco Cessation Services: The program provides tobacco cessation services, including counseling, nicotine replacement therapy, and medication, to help tobacco users quit.
  3. Tobacco-Free Educational Institutions: The program aims to make all educational institutions tobacco-free by conducting regular inspections and imposing penalties for violations.
  4. Prohibition of Smoking in Public Places: The program enforces the prohibition of smoking in public places, including offices, restaurants, and public transport.
  5. Tobacco Control Laws and Regulations: The program works with the Ministry of Law and Justice to develop and implement tobacco control laws and regulations, including increasing taxes on tobacco products and implementing graphic health warnings on tobacco product packaging.

The National Tobacco Control Programme has contributed to a reduction in tobacco consumption in India. However, the country still faces significant challenges in reducing tobacco use, including the high prevalence of smokeless tobacco and the need for better enforcement of tobacco control laws and regulations.
