New Delhi, May 19: MHA said in a order that “Spitting in public and work places shall be punishable with fine, as may be prescribed in accordance with its laws, rules and regulations by the state/union territory local authority”.

This order is likely to bring about changes in and around government and private work places, where one can easily spot stains of ‘pan’ and ‘gutka’ spitted at some of the corners of walls or areas not frequented by many employees/public.
