Rahul Joshi v. Union of India

Rahul Joshi filed suit, seeking direction from the court for, among other things, implementation of the 2014 rules that called for health warnings on 85% of both sides of tobacco product packaging and the plain packaging of tobacco products.  The court stayed the Government notification holding the 2014 rules in abeyance and directed that the 2014 rules be implemented.  The court also called for the Central Government and the Government of Rajasthan to address plain packaging policy in their reply briefs.
