Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find lots of interesting things about best selling cigarettes in India. Have you ever been to India? Are you planning to go there and you are a smoker? Now, it’s a good chance to be familiar with brands in India. As for me, I tried cigarette when I was five, I think. My elder brother encouraged me, and we smoked from our father’s cigarettes. It was horrible. I coughed, my eyes were in tears.
Smoking can cause lung cancer, and many other serious and fatal diseases. In addition, their advertising has decreased compared to previous years, as well as the sales rate, according to Federal Trade Commission Cigarettes Report from 2013. However, even though the public is well introduced with anti-smoking campaigns and movements, there are still a big number of smokers all over the world. I am afraid I smoke, too. It is very interesting because I began smoking only three years ago. I smoke menthol flavored cigarettes, which is eventually the most popular flavor. But what about the best selling cigarettes in India?
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three cigarettes from their list as usual.
The first one is Navy Cut. Other popular cigarettes in India are Navy Cut, which was one of the first filtered cigarettes to be featured in India. Before that, all cigarettes were unfiltered so switching to filtered ones meant that the tobacco companies needed to advertise their cigarettes a lot if they wanted the same success. Navy Cut can be bought in packs of 10 and 20 cigarettes. The second choice of mine is Pall Mall. Pall Mall is not just one of the best-selling cigarettes in India; it is also the highest selling brand from R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in North Carolina, USA. There are many varieties of Pall Mall such as Red, Blue, Black, and many others, which denote the strength of the cigarette. They also produce long cigarettes. The brand was introduced in 1899, and it continues to be popular ever since. At last I mention Benson & Hedges. Benson&Hedges came sixth among our best selling cigarettes in India and not without reason. This British brand of cigarettes is made from Virginia tobacco and depending on the part of the world; it is owned by BAT (British American Tobacco), Philip Morris International, or Japan Tobacco.
