    appreciated. but brands those package their stuff in plastic bottles, packets? Don't you think they should also be taken care of, because 90% of those used bottles go in landfills again?

    Instead of fining these vendors why don't government ban's manufacturers or stop it's manufacturing? Just loot poors is the government policy.

    Good but half hearted attempt. If u gonna ban plastic be also good enough to give its alternative to people! No one is using plastic by will but by force! All this just adds on to the problems of public. If u plan to ban something arm yourself with its alternative first. Otherwise this is just public harassment, n thanks to groups like MNS Maharashtra already tops in that!

    Hope Govt shud have done same for corruption & other more important issues. Plastic Ban without providing alternative does not make any sense.

    Factories are allowed to operate and bags are banned, if bags are not used for packaging goods will be spoiled which is more severe than the environmental prospect and economically not viable.

    WHY DONT WE JUST SHUT DOWN THE FACTORIES. Once a plastic substance is created it doesnt matter if its being sold, exchanged, this or that, it will exist for a thousand years. The only solution is to ban their production rather than wasting time regulating the people who are using it. well what kind of intelligent idiots are humans.

    We are ofcourse very much concerned about plastic nuisance, and the environmental,health hazards,but after saying this,is the govt and as a society we have any alternate solution? If their is a solution and if it is violated ,we have a justified environment, but now? Secoundly,what action the govt is taking on multinationals for their biscuits packaging,chips packaging? All done in plastic,do they have the balls to stop it? Can the govt violate its own rule by packing milk in plastic sachets?? I mean their should be a collective responsibility,rathwr then fining small kiranas,and using the law for collection
