January 1, Indian ships will prohibit on board a large number of single-use
plastic products, including ice cream containers, hot dish cups, microwave
dishes and potato chips bags. The decision has been taken in larger public
interest by the Directorate General of Shipping following an appeal by Prime
Minister Narendra Modi on August 15 to "take the first big step"
towards freeing India of single-use plastics.
