The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) on 30 April 2015 banned production, storage, transportation and usage of low quality plastic cups, bags, pan-masala packing wrappers across the city. The ban will be effective from 1 May 2015.
The ban was issued after it was found that use of low grade plastic waste was resulting in chocking of man-hall and drainage system of the city.
AMC notification says that commercial units, food stalls, tea shops, and others found using such plastic cups, bags and wrappers will face legal actions.
Now, the Municipal authorities will start campaign in the city and seal the shops and other commercial units found violating the ban on low grade plastic materials.
