Deputy Commissioner (DC) Dimapur and DLCC chairman, Kevekha Kevin Zehol has appealed to all government departments, PSUs, Banks, hotels and restaurants in Dimapur district to restrict smoking in their offices and premises. 

The Deputy Commissioner, in an appeal letter, cited the Cigarettes and other Tobacco Products Act 2003 (Which bans smoking in public places) and requested these businesses and offices to display the mandatory “This is a public place. Smoking here is an offence” sign in their business premises, offices and restaurants (with 30 and above seats). 

Hotels with 30 or more rooms have been asked to designate a separate smoking room for customers.

According to Kevekha, the objective of this provision is to protect citizens against second hand smoke, make work places healthier and strengthen the Smoke Free Dimapur Campaign launched by Tobacco Free Institutions in Dimapur.
