Modi to ban six types of plastic products: Reports

Recently, Narendra Modi gave a call to the nation to end the use of single-use plastic by 2022.  One thought he was trying to make a moral appeal on the occasion of Independence Day.  

But if some reports are to be believed, the Prime Minister has plans to impose a nation-wide, sweeping ban on six types of plastic products very soon.  As per some reports, the ban will be a holistic one, covering manufacturing and supply as well.  

Says IFS officer Parveen Kaswan, "In a most-cheerful news, India is all set to impose a nationwide ban on plastic bags, cups and straws on October 2. Six types of single-use plastic will be banned countrywide.  A relief for all villages, cities, rivers, protected areas and oceans."

Will it really happen?  Let's wait and watch.
