The Union Cabinet on Friday decided to toughen anti-smoking laws, restricting smoking in public places and advertisement of tobacco products .

The Cabinet further approved a Health and Family Welfare Ministry proposal for amending the Cigarette and other Tobacco Products 2003 Act in the first week of the monsoon session of the Parliament, Information and Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi told reporters after a Cabinet meeting in New Delhi.

A vigorous anti-tobacco campaign would be launched from October 2.

A bid by the ministry to enforce a ban on smoking scenes in films last year met with stiff opposition from filmmakers. A blanket ban is yet to come into effect.

The Health Ministry has also been trying to stipulate a pictorial warning on all tobacco products. Manufacturers say the proposed skull-and-crossbone illustration is too graphic.

A new illustration would be decided soon, Dasmunsi said.

The Cabinet also approved a Health Ministry proposal for amendment of laws governing administration of the elite All India Institute of Medical Sciences, citing 'anarchy' in management.

The tobacco law, in its present form prohibits smoking in
