DFS India gets the nod to sell cigarettes at airports without health warnings

The Supreme Court on Friday allowed DFS India Private Ltd to continue its operations and sell international cigarette brands and other tobacco products in duty-free outlets at the departure lounges of India’s international airports without any statutory pictorial warnings.

DFS had challenged the Bombay High Court’s judgment that refused to interfere with the authorities that restricted the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai.
