In what they claimed pointed to the ingenuity of the manufactures,FDA’s Thane division has seized two sets of commodities,manufactured by the same company,with the ingredients of gutkha divided into two sachets. One sachet contains paan masala and another sold under a different brand name contains zarda and tobacco with cardamom. “The consumer knows he has to mix the two sachets to make gutkha. All the packets were seized. The notification is clear that gutkha,whether sold as one product or in different versions,is banned,” said an officer from Thane FDA.
