Dozens dead as heavy rains trigger floods in India

Robie de Guzman   •   October 1, 2019

Floods triggered by torrential rains have left almost 50 people dead in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, an official told Reuters on Saturday (September 28).

The state, India’s largest, has witnessed constant rainfall in recent days and rivers have been flowing several notches above warning levels.

On Sunday (September 29) vehicles were abandoned and submerged in flood water while people were being evacuated by the National Disaster Response Force in the neighbouring state of Bihar.

India’s monsoon usually starts retreating at the start of September but has been delayed by a month this year.

Intense rainfall in many parts of the country has triggered floods that have swamped cane and rice fields. (Reuters)

India becomes latest country to ban sale of e-cigarettes

Robie de Guzman   •   September 19, 2019

India became the latest country after Brazil and Thailand to ban the sale of e-cigarettes in what could potentially be the biggest move against vaping globally over growing health concerns.

The ban, which also covers the production, import and advertising of e-cigarettes, cuts off a huge future market from e-cigarette makers at a time when the number of people smoking worldwide is declining.

“There has been a 77 percent increase in addiction of e-cigarettes among school-going or college-going young adults, teenagers, and children because nicotine addiction is quick and it is harmful as well,” Indian Secretary of Health and Family Welfare Preeti Sudan said.

India has 106 million smokers, second only to China.

The ban could also dash the expansion plans of companies such as Altria, backed Juul Labs, and Philip Morris International into the country.

“$150 billion opportunity, now that’s what is estimated, the nicotine market is going to be, why are we denying our farmers that, why are we denying our citizens a right to a less harmful product, these are questions that I would really like to ask the government,” Praveen Rikhy, Trade Representatives of endsin India said.
