Description

On World No Tobacco Day, 31st May 2016, WHO and the Secretariat of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control are calling countries to get ready for plain (standardized) packaging of tobacco products.

The CBSE is committed to supporting all initiatives by schools, which have the major responsibility to highlight and raise awareness among their students, staff and the community, about the negative impact of tobacco use. The Board also directs all schools to ensure that Section 6 of Indian Tobacco Control Act COTPA 2003, which prohibits the sale of tobacco products in an area within radius of 100 yards of any educational institution, is effectively enforced through a DISPLAY BOARD put up outside the institution.

Effective awareness-raising is possible through the conduct of various competitions, where students apply their knowledge, observation and creativity, through a variety of media, on the spot. These will go a long way in eradicating the menace of tobacco use among students, staff and the communities.
