Naya Bans Sarv Vyapar Association v. Union of India

An association of tobacco wholesalers challenged a provision of India's omnibus tobacco control law that prohibits the sale tobacco products within 100 yards of a school. An earlier judgment ruled that the law applied to wholesale as well as retail tobacco sales and allowed the association to conduct its wholesale business within 100 yards of a school only after 2 pm. This decision modified the earlier order by changing the time that the association is allowed to conduct business to after 4 pm.
