It is not going to be easy for India to meet its commitment to the World Health Organisation (WHO) to bring down tobacco production by 50 per cent in the next one decade. Tobacco output in India is estimated to be more than 700 million kg in 2009-10 due to higher price realisation last year and scanty rainfall.
