The Federal Government of Pakistan has recently taken the decision of putting a ban on the sale of unpacked cigarettes.
According to the news, the ban will be placed on the behalf of Ordinance of Prohibition of Smoking 2002.
This ban will however not affect the selling of packed cigarettes and they will continue to be sold.
A notification in this regard will be issued by the Ministry of Health to all the provinces, most likely before the year ends.
In the notification, all the provinces will be directed to follow the newly introduced ban to the letter, through which the sale or consumption of unpacked/open cigarettes will completely be banned throughout the entire country.
The policy will allow smokers to buy packed cigarette cases instead of open ones.
