    Why govt is not banning manufacturing companies instead of wasting money on such Inspectors?

    The fine is excessive. First move to ensure industry stop making it. The concept of recycling to be initiated. Strictly ban is not advisable, there should be some exception to it.

    Good work... However, in my opinion we need alternatives before implementing such rules. We should have started with small steps like providing alternatives for stuff that have mass reach like milk pouches, bread, vegetable / fruit carry bags etc. Recently read an article where it was proposed to ban outer packaging of daily use items like toothpaste and many cosmetic products. Amount of unnecessary waste generated from these is huge and by banning it we could save so much. Should have started with similar kind of initiatives..

    Why can't you ban the factories and stockies of plastic makers to limit usage of single use plastics instead penalizing local vendors

    I don’t understand why people do not carry a cloth bag with them. Its easily foldable and goes inside your handbag or pocket and its lighter than an average mobile phone.

    Why only retailers and poor people who are suffering to manage daily living. Why not companies who are making them!!

    Still in Mira Road Hawkers give plastic bags easily to all their Customers since last six months openely BMC has closed their eyes .As 1yr back plastics are banned then why BMC inspector regularly visit why occasionally comes out & doing this ,they have to visit regularly for next 10 years so that completely stop by Hawkers & Shopkeepers giving customer an plastic bags.Even BMC should also has to help the Shopkeepers instead of Plastics what alternative items they can use & from where.
