e-ciggerate consumption at restaurants bars cafes

I am seeing that many people are still consuming e-cigs inside cafes, restaurants and bars.

Though the ban kicks in on Oct 1 I think, the fssai or consumer ministry must make sure all restaurants cafes are sent clear communication to report ecigs on their premises.

The fine I believe is 1 lakhs and 3 mos imprisonment and on repeat offense 5 lakhs and 6 months jail.

Some fine should also apply to whose premises its happening at for better enforcement. more

Why stop at fines and imprisonment? Cut off their heads! In our country, to show intent, government makes rules that are unenforceable and then applies unreasonable penalties and of course for every misdemeanor there is threat of imprisonment. This is nothing but subjugation of the citizens. It is like a colonial or a Mughal rule. A fine that increases with subsequent misdemeanor is OK, but imprisonment should be threatened only for criminal or rarest cases. more  
The government plays tricks with he public. First they allow permission to run cafes, restaurants and bars. Is there any restriction for items "not permitted" ? Now rules are imposed, why ? more  
Ensuring proper ban on E-cigarette production will definitely help. more  
Rulers like Mughals, The British brought tobacco cultivation into India as a cash crop over seral centuries infact replacing crop area like Guntur. Our society picked p smoking habit wit fervor and pleasure. Now we are struggling to come out of this. more  
Google defines e-cigs as follows:
E-cigarettes are battery powered devices that work by heating a liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales and exhales. The e-cigarette liquid typically contains nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerin, flavorings, and other chemicals.

This means that e-cigarettes contain intoxicants to which the user can get addicted to.

Letting the youth get addicted to such a dangerous intoxicating drug is irresponsible and also harmful.

More such decisions need to be taken in the form of law.......and their implementation !!! more
