Plastic Ban brought a lot of chaos and pros and cons with itself. Authorities to follow the strict rules handing the citizens to stay with “no plastic”.
No sooner than the plastic ban came in to practice the bins were overflowed and would need special attention.
The image regarding the different locations refers to the fine recovered by the authorities. Around 4-5 lakhs or more by now. We must say it is a total “no-no” to plastic when we check out the figures.
While this sort of cleaning, When the PMC (Pune Muncipal Corporation) squad visited the Shivam clothing store near Pune railway station to confiscate around 20 kg of plastic carry bags, the shopkeeper Ashish Khandelwal telephoned Shinde, who arrived at the shop and got into an argument with the civic team.
He stressed that the Congress will not allow the imposition of fine anywhere in the city and will continue to oppose all such actions.
Now, obviously they expect a cooperation from the citizens and the authorities both as in Suresh Jagtap, head of the solid waste management department at PMC, explained that the basic intent of the plastic ban is not to impose fine but to completely stop the use of plastic. “I will look into the matter and ensure that such things do not happen again”.
The restaurant in Pune on the other hand considered the “plastic ban” optimistic and they decided on providing all the food stuff in a steel container. The restaurant also has the “take away” orders covered. One has to deposit an amount of Rs. 200 which the restaurant reimburses once the boxes are returned.
People who always avoided takeouts as they didn’t want hot food to be put into a plastic container can have their meal safe and convenient now.
