    Now this a right kind of ban. We need more bans like these.

    This is beyond stupid! The "samosa" itself is carcinogenic what with the substandard oil and ingredients. Not to mention the germs from directly touching the food by the vendor! The paper and "ink" is a secondary issue as no one is eating the paper, hopefully.

    Well it's only going to kill the small vendors,if they really wanted to save the planet then they would have banned all the big corporation also..Just a way to get into the news that's it.

    ... and who will take the responsibility of implementing the law. Which government body will penalize the person not abiding by the laws and to what extent.

    What percentage will adhere to the law? Not many. Just like many of the other laws and regulations that most don't follow. Especially the administrators.

    Loads of negative comments; I am surprised why can’t we appreciate such good efforts by govt. Check the increasing Air quality index of metros, it’s unhealthy for sensitive groups and no measures for that. Such good efforts should be appropriated than cribbed

    BJP and Congress Boys already have factories in place to take care of the demand. Same DEMO-PayTM situation. Crony all the way :)

    I'm sure it won't effect big brand's profucts like Lays and all . Coz govt. Fear rich corporate elites as they own the government.
