Plastic ban in Maharashtra

https://www.google.co.in/amp/indiane...-5109540/lite/

The Maharashtra government is taking a risk. It's popularity could fall due to this

The Maharashtra ban is much more comprehensive and covers more things than other states .

Re: Plastic ban in Maharashtra

At least plastic covers (shopping bags) should be completely banned. Only for like packaging it should be allowed.

Maybe this extends to plastic surgery of all kinds too.

Ashdoc, will your business be badly affected if plastic surgery is banned ?

Big Q is 'how far it can be implemented'?
Matka, betting, etc. are banned. But they still go on.

Re: Plastic ban in Maharashtra

With this move, the government has single handedly wiped out a lot of small and medium scale industries and created unemployment..

Bravo, need of the hour. Someone has the balls to take the decision without being afraid of popularity ratings.

Re: Plastic ban in Maharashtra

Nice move. Long due. When i was growing up, plastic bags were barely used. Especially vegetables, groceries etc were taken in our own reusable bags; basket to be specific. If we could do it decades ago, we can do it now.

I lived in India for 5 years recently. I have seen that the regular subji bhajiwala bhaiyyas do not dispense plastic bags and you have to carry your own cloth or plastic bags. This is because the municipality fines them.

So there are some measures already in effect.

The problem in Mumbai is the clogging of sewers and drains in monsoon and plastic thrown into them is the major culprit. Tomorrow you will ban plastic, but the people will still keep throwing paper bags or whatever bags into them.

Plastic bags can be used responsibly but the people need to change their habits and attitude.

Just banning plastic is not going to help. For example, small vendors and shops pack stuff like sweets, curd etc in plastic bags and give it to you. Are you going to carry steel or glass vessels everywhere with you when you buy stuff?

Also you get food delivery at home. How are the restaurants going to send wet dishes like sambar etc? In paper bags?

Most of the times this government is all about ban first without any thought or provision to tackle the problem.


Just dont clap like those green party environmentalists sitting outside Mumbai and call plastic evil.

The Maharashtra BJP government will have a dip in their approval ratings not just from the plastic industry and the workers who will be jobless, but also by so many other vendors, traders, shop keepers, etc who need plastic bags to operate their business.

Offcourse now many will come here and give lecture on environmental issues and all that.. I have seen the reality in Mumbai from 2011 to 2016. So I speak based on what I have seen and experienced. Rest of the arm chair generals can go fuck off!

Usually when a ban is about to happen, it happens with some notice. There are plenty of alternatives to serve sambar. I know it will be a tad more expensive than plastic but the cost usually is borne by the customer.

Perhaps the government can help find vendors for getting these other recyclable options? It may not be readily found now, but its there. It will be just a way of life in a few months. Plastic is a very recent concept. Its not too hard to substitute this.

Isn't whole of echarcha based on this?

But you have not seen it work in Himachal, where plastic bags were banned 15 years ago.. people started using their own cloth grocery bags, and those who forgot easily got a cloth bag for 10-20 bucks.. then they never forget. of course ban doesn't mean 100% stop, it's like 90%.

Even in Gurgaon malls and Delhi shops, I didn't get 1 plastic bag after lakhs spent in shopping for a wedding last year.
