a ban on plastic was enforced in government offices in to, it would cost lakhs
of rupees to the exchequer, as most items of stationery and accessories,
barring furniture, may have to be replaced with either paper or metallic items.
The government had agreed to a ban during a meeting of Goa state environment

cautiously on it due to practical problems and considering phased
implementation of realistic aspects and promotion of reusable material.
