It gives us immense pride to share with you that Rajasthan has won the 2014 ‘World No Tobacco Day’ Award, by WHO, in the South-East Asia Region for imposing highest Value Added Tax (‪#‎VAT‬) on tobacco products in India!

In 2010-11, the VAT was 12.5% and in 2013-14, the VAT has shot up to a steep 65%, as a move to discourage smoking.

Now  we can say that the royal state of regal hospitality is much more clean and healthier for the tourists visiting Rajasthan.
