Puducherry government has decided to ban the production, sale and use of single-use plastic products in the Union Territory from March 1.

Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy said, ‘We want to gift a plastic free Puducherry to the future generation and curb the plastic in the larger interest of environment. Neighbouring Tamil Nadu government had announced in June, 2018 that it would ban the use of plastic items including non-biodegradable carry bags from January 1, 2019 to gift a plastic-free state to future generations.

A nominated BJP legislator had staged a ‘dharna’ on December 31, asking for an immediate ban on the production, sale and use of plastic products in the Union Territory on the lines of Tamil Nadu.
