It is very good move by the GOI, Second hand smoke is more dangerous than the First smoke from the tobacco.

public place is a place where public has accesess, as a matter of right or other wise.
so, "other wise" covers almost any other area
Manish Singh (Expert) 23 October 2008
I disagree with Mr salilkumar,
under the act (prohibition of smoking and production or so...), public place was defined as not being any open space but now under the new notification under the Act, open space has been defined in an another way which shall include bus stop, railway compound, stadium and such other things. so interpretation is to be done of the word "such other thing".

roads do not come under the term public place.
