    The Telangana State Food Safety Commissioner has banned the production and sale of gutka and pan masala with tobacco and nicotine in the state for one year. This decision was made after raids on various places like hotels, restaurants, and warehouses.

    These products are considered harmful and can lead to serious health issues like oral cancer. Studies show that smokeless tobacco is more commonly used in India compared to smoked tobacco, with a high number of adults using it.
