Sambalpur's beedi producers are a worried lot

Micro and small beedi manufacturers in Odisha’s Sambalpur district are worried over the proposed ban on the manufacturing, sale and use of tobacco products -- such as gutka and pan masala -- in that state.

Calling the ban an inappropriate act, manufacturers in the state are fearing the imposition of a ban on the sale of beedis too.

Notably, the state health minister, Damodar Rout, had announced on January 1 that the government is likely to issue a notification in this regard soon.

“The ban would adversely affect the gutka manufacturing industry in the state. If a ban is levied on beedi manufacturing too, it would affect the livelihood of many people in the state. There are over one lakh micro units producing beedis in the Sambalpur district, employing over five lakh people,” stated Ravi Kumar, a beedi manufacturer.

“A ban cannot be a solution to any problem. The state government should create awareness among the public, for them to quit tobacco. It should educate people by starting campaigns, and should not restrict the sale of these products,” said Shambuavtar, another manufacturer of beedis
“It would become difficult for us to get tobacco for beedi manufacturing now. Also, we will soon not be able sell our products in other states,” he said.
