The health ministry has proposed to make production, manufacturing, import, export, transport, sale, distribution or advertisements of e-cigarettes a cognizable offence.
The draft ordinance also makes storage of e-cigarettes punishable with jail term up to six months and fine up to Rs 50,000 or both.
