I want to sell tabbaco product in front of the school


hi i had a very old shop in front of school. my shop is license is very old of  the year2000.. The distance between school and my shop is only 300 sq ft. i want to know how i can continue selling tabacoo product. As my shop 80% profit depend upon the tabacco product.

I know my responsibility, i never selled tabacco to minors. I want to know what is geniune and authorised way to sell tabacco. Becuase one day police constable had came and told to my father to stop keeping the tabacco prduct in your shop otherwise you have to pay fine. The shop license is on my name and my father always  seat in the shop.

Please give me the suggestion.

your license may be very old. But the law is new and you perhaps have no licence to deviate. In past while law was not there you were allowed to sell tobacco there but now you cannot. I give you example that prior to 1968 there was no law against hunting wild animals. One cannot claim to hunt with pre-19689 rifle. Prior to 1961 dowry demand was not a crime. Prior to independence hurling cast abuse was not crime.

further even if the license is in your name yet father will be liable for prosecution if found selling tobacco in front of school.
