Puducherry to ban plastic of less than 51 microns
20 September 2017 Current Affairs: The Puducherry Government decided to ban manufacture and use of plastic packaging materials of less than 51 microns as these were found to be injurious to health and a source of menace during monsoon in the Union Territory.

The Welfare and Environment Minister M Kandasamyinformed officials of departments concerned with solid waste management that the ban would come into force in the next six months.

The Government advised hotel and restaurant owners to abstain from packing ‘ready to eat’ food items in ‘butter paper’ or such plastic transparent sheets.

They also directed shop owners not to use newspapers for supplying such food items.
