Description

MUMBAI, INDIA - JUNE 20: People still using plastic carry bags at Thane market, on June 20, 2019 in Mumbai, India. A year after the Maharashtra government introduced a state-wide plastic ban, its implementation by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in the city seems to have lost momentum: Markets are once again flooded with single-use plastic, the civic body has still not started fining errant customers, and BMC’s ‘blue squads’ – in charge of raiding shops – have virtually disappeared from the streets. Experts say the failure of the plastic can be attributed to poor coordination among civic officials and lack of effective mechanisms to enforce the ban. (Photo by Praful Gangurde/Hindustan Times )
