Single Use Plastic Ban in India from 1st July 2022

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change notified in a statement that India will ban the manufacture, import, stocking, distribution, sale, and use of identified single-use plastic items, which have low utility and high littering potential, all across the country from July 1.
This ban is a huge step toward India’s fight against the landfill, air pollution and marine pollution.
The list of banned items includes –
# ear buds with plastic sticks
# plastic sticks for balloons
# plastic flags
# candy sticks
# ice-cream sticks
# polystyrene (Thermocol) for decoration
# plastic plates, cups, glasses, cutlery such as forks, spoons, knives, straw, trays, stirrers
# wrapping or packing films around sweet boxes, invitation cards, cigarette packets

# plastic or PVC banners less than 70 micron
From December 2022, polythene bags smaller than 120 microns will also be banned.
For effective enforcement of the ban, national and state-level control rooms are set up and special enforcement teams formed by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the State Pollution Control Boards (SPCBs).
People found to be flouting the ban can be fined under the Environment Protection Act 1986, which permits *jail of up to five years, or a penalty of up to Rs 1 lakh, or both*.
