After regulating anti-tobacco warnings on OTT Platforms, India has taken the lead in raising global awareness about tobacco use.
On Wednesday, the Union Health Ministry announced new guidelines for anti-tobacco warnings on OTT platforms. If the publisher of online content disregards the guidelines, the ministry will take strict enforcement action.
Every year on May 31, people worldwide observe “World No Tobacco Day.” It is now widely acknowledged that tobacco addiction is the leading global contributor to avoidable death and disability. Millions of people die each year as a result of tobacco use.
It is required that all OTT platforms display anti-tobacco warning messages while we watch films and TV shows.
