In 2012, Brazil became the first country in the world to ban menthol cigarettes. Hence, statement 2 is not correct.

India has not banned the sale of menthol cigarettes. Hence, statement 1 is correct.

In 2019, the Centre banned electronic cigarettes and in addition, different states have their own rules in place banning hookah consumption, including flavored hookahs, in public places.

Menthol, with its minty taste and aroma, “reduces the irritation and harshness of smoking.

This increases appeal and makes menthol cigarettes easier to use, particularly for youth and young adults.

Menthol also interacts with nicotine in the brain to enhance nicotine’s addictive effects, while making it more difficult for people to quit smoking.

With reference to Scheduled Tribes, consider the following statements:
 
  1. he Constitution prescribes the criteria for declaring a community declared as a Scheduled Tribe.
  2. Primitive Tribal Groups were created on the recommendation of the Dhebar Commission.
 
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?
A)
1 only
B)
2 only
C)
Both 1 and 2
D)
Neither 1 nor 2

Correct Answer : Option (B) - 2 only

Note :

Article 366 (25) of the Constitution refers to Scheduled Tribes as those communities that are scheduled in accordance with Article 342 of the Constitution.

Article 342 says that only those communities who have been declared as such by the President through an initial public notification or through a subsequent amending Act of Parliament will be Scheduled Tribes.

The list of Scheduled Tribes is State/UT specific, and a community declared as a Scheduled Tribe in one State need not be so in another State.

The Constitution is silent about the criteria for specification of a community as a Scheduled Tribe. Hence, statement 1 is NOT correct.

In 1973, the Dhebar Commission created Primitive Tribal Groups (PTGs) as a separate category, that are less developed among the tribal groups.

In 2006, the Government of India renamed the PTGs as Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs). Hence, statement 2 is correct.

PVTGs are more vulnerable among the tribal groups.
