Smokers rejoice! Marlboro will be very soon be officially manufactured and sold in India.
Even today Marlboro packets are available with most paanwallahs in India, but most of it is imported from other countries increasing the cost due to import taxes. Another problem is that there is high amount of duplication that takes place.
Ask any Marlboro smoker and he will tell you that original Marlboro is available only at selected places.
However, Marlboro smokers will very soon be able to enjoy their favourite brand without cost and duplication worries.
US tobacco giant Philip Morris International is in talks with its Indian joint-venture partner Godfrey Philips India to manufacture and sell its Marlboro cigarette brand.
