Plastic ban in Maharashtra comes into effect

In Maharashtra, the statewide ban on single-use plastic items comes into effect on Saturday. Heavy fine will be imposed on those caught using these items. The initial penalty for use is 5,000 rupees, but repeat offenders can also be jailed for 3 months.

While environmentalists and most citizens are appreciative of the govt’s decision just ahead of the monsoon rains where plastic chokes drains leading to flooding in cities like Mumbai, shopkeepers are a worried lot over the switchover.
