Source: NDTV, New Delhi, April, 2017 :- The National Green Tribunal today sought a
status report from the Delhi government on its order banning the use of
disposable plastic in the national capital. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson
Justice Swatanter Kumar asked the city government and Delhi Pollution Control
Committee to file a detailed compliance report in this regard before May 19.
The NGT had last year prohibited the use of disposable plastic in the entire
city, especially at hotels, restaurants and for public and private functions,
while asking the Delhi government to take appropriate steps against “storage,
sale and use” of such material from January 1 this year. The tribunal was hearing
a petition seeking review of the December 2, 2016 order imposing the ban on
disposable plastic in entire NCT of Delhi.
