Brief Overview

E-cigarettes are legal in most of India, although the import, sale, possession, use and distribution of e-cigarettes, its components and liquids is banned in the states of Kerala, Karnataka, Punjab, Maharashtra,in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, and most recently in Bihar.

We strongly advise you do not visit these six areas with any e-cigarette products in your possession. The state of Punjab sentenced a man to 3 years in jail along with a fine of Rs.1 Lakh (US$1,559) on the 7th of April, 2016. He had in his possession just one cigalike e-cigarette with eight cartridges.

In areas where e-cigarettes are legal you are sure to find quite an active vaping scene and a variety of retail stores, especially in New Delhi.
