India puts off larger warnings on tobacco packs

India has decided to delay implementation of bigger health warnings on tobacco packaging by a year until April 2016, as pressure mounts on New Delhi to take urgent steps to reduce tobacco consumption. India last year said 85 per cent of a cigarette packet's surface should be covered in health warnings, up from about 20 per cent now.

But the rules, originally to be enforced from April this year, were deferred after a parliamentary panel said it was reviewing how the industry will be impacted.
