In May 2003 the President, Dr A. P.J. Abdul Kalam, gave assent to the Tobacco Bill that bans advertisement of cigarettes and other tobacco products and prohibits sponsorship of sports and cultural events by manufacturers of these products

The Indian smoking tobacco market is dominated by the indigenous bidis in volume terms. Bidis are stronger and cheaper than white cigarettes, and are the preferred smoke of Indians across the country but especially in the northern regions. The bidi industry enjoys political protection, and is not so heavily taxed, even though bidis have a higher nicotine content. Cigarettes account for only 18.8% of domestic tobacco consumption in India. Bidis account for 53.5%, and the balance is mainly non smoking tobacco (NST) products.

Volume consumption of cigarettes declined sharply in 2001. The share of cigarettes in tobacco consumption has been declining steadily, falling to a record low of 87.8 billion sticks in March 2002, down from its peak at 104.2 billion sticks in March 1998. Cigarette sales have been adversely affected by rising excise duties and legislation against public smoking. There has been a movement in consumption patterns towards smokeless tobacco

Retail sales of manufactured cigarettes are also being adversely affected by contraband, the volume share of which is estimated to have risen to nearly 12% in 2002, from 1% in 1997. Traditionally, contraband is strong in the premium end, but more recently it has also been growing in the economy price band segment

The concept of low tar or low nicotine is not significant in India. The standard varieties in cigarettes are Kings, Filters and Minis

India’s leading tobacco manufacturer ITC reported a 4% growth in cigarette volumes year-on-year for the period April to August 2002, compared to a decline of 9% in the same period in 2001. Its two competitors Godfrey Philips India and VST also reported some growth in sales volume over the same period

Prices of cigarettes have been rising constantly, with the excise duties on cigarettes increasing each and every year from 1998 up to 2001. Duties were left unchanged in 2002 giving some stability to prices

The current view in the industry is that cigarette sales are in decline and that the habit has become less popular with the young

There have been increasing problems for the domestic cigarette industry. Smoking is being gradually curbed in public places. There is growing health consciousness among the premium cigarette smokers

Growers and manufacturers realise that diversification is the only long-term solution available to the industry

State Governments are becoming more stringent with their regulations: smoking on railway platforms is strictly prohibited and a number of companies are making their entire premises smoke free
