Smoke-free initiatives have gained significant momentum since India enacted comprehensive smoke-free legislation in October 2008. The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease has actively supported various levels of government, legislators, civil society, and communities across the country to implement smoke-free public places and comply with the law. On World No Tobacco Day 2010, four jurisdictions demonstrated that public places within their jurisdictions were smoke-free. These jurisdictions cover a wide spectrum of demographic and geographic variation and include an entire state. The demonstration of being ‘smoke-free’ in these jurisdictions was supported by a simple survey that documented compliance with the smoke-free law in the country.
