Plastic ban fizzles out in Hyderabad

Plastic ban fizzles out in Hyderabad

Seven months after it was imposed, the plastic ban in Hyderabad has fizzled out completely. While production of 'cheap' plastic (below 40 micron) in city-based manufacturing units has shot, import from neighbouring states too has increased manifold.

Even the price of plastic below 40 micron that was just about Rs 80-85 per kg prior to the ban has now touched a new high of Rs 110 per kg. Worse, erring units raided and shut by the authorities over the last few months are back in action producing reams of the forbidden stuff on a regular basis.
