The World Health Organization  has
estimated that more than eight million people died
worldwide every year from tobacco consumption. Most
importantly, fifty percent of users died due to tobaccoborne diseases and eighty percent of total users are from
lower-income countries. As part of fiscal policy, tax, as well
as price increasing method, is considered the most effective
way to reduce cigarette consumption in any nation. The
Government of Bangladesh has tried to reduce tobacco
consumption without hampering revenue collection from
tobacco tax. Consequently, the strategic decision had been
taken to balance between those two factions over the years.
In this paper, all the data had been collected from
secondary sources. A regression analysis had been
conducted in the research to find out the relation between
tobacco consumption with tobacco tax and education rate.
It had been found that a higher tax rate and increased
education rate had a negative impact on tobacco
consumption tendency in the context of Bangladesh.
