The Times of India, Coimbatore, Mar, 2017 : After a lull of six months, the civic body has again begun to crack
the whip on those selling plastic bags below 50 microns. On Tuesday, a team of
officials from the Coimbatore Corporation seized five tonnes of banned plastic
bags from wholesale shops at Thomas Street and Raja Street in the city. The
total cost of the seized bags is estimated at Rs 3.5 lakh. The civic body had
seized 500kg of banned plastic bags during a raid conducted six months ago from
a shop at Sundarapuram.
