Plastic ban effective from July 1- Dinamani IG News

The ban on single-use plastics will come into effect on July 1.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for the complete elimination of single-use plastics by 2022. Following this, the Federal Ministry of Environment announced the revised rules for plastic waste management on August 12 last year.

Accordingly, the production, import, storage, distribution, sale and use of single-use plastic products will be banned nationwide from July 1.

Disposable plastic debris can cause damage to land, water levels, and the deep sea.

At the Fourth UN Conference on the Environment in 2019, India adopted a resolution emphasizing the need for a global focus on environmental pollution from disposable plastic products.

Prohibited plastic items: earrings with plastic sticks, balloons with plastic sticks, plastic flags, ice cream sticks, tomocol for decoration, plastic plates, mugs, plastic knife, spoon, fork, sucker, bag, tray, sling Pockets, such as plastic or PVC pens less than 100 microns, are included in the list of prohibited items.

The federal government has instructed state governments to take action to curb the sale of banned plastic products. The Central Government has said that the Central Pollution Control Board has set up a grievance processor to empower the people to assist the government in this matter and has launched a logo called Prakriti to create awareness among the public.
