Plastic bag notification in limbo

The Delhi government is yet to notify the ban on plastic bags due to some “technical issues”, an official said. The cabinet of chief minister Sheila Dikshit approved the ban a month ago.

The Delhi cabinet on September 11 decied to slap a blanket ban on manufacture, storage and usage of plastic bags in the Capital.

“There are some technical issues in the process of notifying the ban on plastic bags but they will be sorted out,” a senior official said.

The official refused to elaborate the technicalities. “The file pertaining to the same has already been sent to the lieutenant-governor. We hope the ban will be notified in a week,” said the official.

Once the order is notified, the use of plastic to pack magazines, invitation and greeting cards will also be prohibited.
