The health ministry is consulting the information & broadcasting ministry and other key stakeholders on issuing a notification to OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hotstar to carry anti-tobacco warning messages like we see in movies screened in theatres and TV programmes.

 
In a crucial move that will mandate OTT (over-the-top) platforms or streaming services to show health warnings during smoking scenes in movies and Web series, the Union Health Ministry is planning to amend the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA).

Officials said that the changes in COTPA rules are expected within the next few months.
