Due to an upcoming ban on vaporizers (Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems) by the Union Government, alt. Vapors will be forced to temporarily halt its business operations until further notice starting Monday, September 16, 2019 i.e. we will not be selling devices or pods on our website or anywhere else until further legal updates. Orders placed until 11:59pm on Sunday, September 15 will be shipped.

In light of this development, we are running a limited time pre-Ban Sale to raise funds for the legal battle that lies ahead. alt. Starter Kits will be just Rs. 1999 using the code BANSALE (Rs. 1000 off!). Bulk orders of 20 or more Pods will be 20% off using the code BULK20. We encourage buying pods to last you 2-3 months. Customers who order Pods worth Rs. 10,000 or more will also receive a free alt. Device Kit!

We are extremely disheartened to see the government choose an approach of banning rather than regulating the vaping industry, which has the potential to do tremendous good for India’s 100 million plus adult smokers.

We hope that in the end, science will prevail, and India will join the long list of countries such as the UK, US, Switzerland, and UAE that have legalized and even advocated for vaping as a safer alternative to smoking.

Thank you for your support over the last year.

We will be working hard to challenge the ban in courts, to fight for Indian smokers’ right to choose and hope to be back soon. 

Team alt.
