dc.description.abstract Among the economic measures mentioned in the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), tobacco taxation is the most cost effective intervention to reduce tobacco consumption. However, use of tobacco products is not uniform; cigarette use is concentrated more in urban areas and smokeless tobacco (SLT) and bidi (an indigenous hand-rolled smoked tobacco product) use is concentrated in rural areas. The current tax regime is not reflective of this consumption pattern and needs to change. en
