The ban “compromises hygiene for common man/masses and favours only large establishments,” says the industry body
The Tamil Nadu government is all set to go ahead with its decision to implement a ban on use of single use plastic across the state from January 1 next year. The decision by the state government in June this year coincided with the World Environment Day this year.
The plastic industry, however, has expressed apprehensions over the implementation of the move and termed it discriminatory against individuals and small businesses.
The Tamil Nadu Plastic Manufacturers’ Association (TAPMA) are holding a demonstration in Chennai today appealing to the Tamil Nadu government to withdraw its order. The order will take effect from January 1, 2019.
