The NSS Units of Government College of Commerce and Business Administration Sector 50, Chandigarh organized an online meeting on 31 May 2023 to mark Anti-Tobacco Day. As a part of this initiative, conceived by the Principal of the College, Prof. (Dr.) Punam Agarwal, the volunteers were motivated by the encouraging words of Girls and Boys POs, Ms. Vandana Jain and Mr. Ashutosh Sharma, respectively. The NSS volunteers took a pledge on Anti-Tobacco Day which was followed by a presentation by an NSS volunteer, which highlighted the drawbacks of consumption of tobacco. Further, a few videos were presented depicting how one gets addicted to any type of tobacco. The takeaway from this online meeting for all the NSS volunteers is that smoking has a high cost on health, finances and the environment. Anti-Tobacco Day serves as the reminder of the dangers of smoking and the benefits of quitting it.
