The Palike also made it clear that the use of single-use plastics should be controlled and eliminated progressively by designing appropriate management strategies. The Palike stressed alternatives like cloth or paper items.


As per the municipal corporation, failure to comply with rules will attract fines and other action against violators under Solid Waste Management bylaws.


Officials have been given standing instructions to make continuous efforts to create awareness among the public, especially students and children, and eliminate the practice of using single-use plastics. It will regularly conduct competitions among students on the theme ‘Avoid/Give up single-use plastic’.

Though a similar order was issued back in 2022, we will be implementing the ban of single-use plastic strictly now, said Prathiba, Joint Commissioner, Solid Waste Management.
