Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is all set to implement the plastic ban in the city and has written to the state government regarding the same. It has sought permission from the government to form a task force to enforce the proposed ban.


The GHMC commissioner will be the chairperson of the force, and the team will comprise GHMC’s Directorate of Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EVDM) officials, GHMC zonal commissioners, additional commissioners, officials from municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD), Telangana state pollution control board, district collectorates, and other departments.


Following the Plastic Waste Management (amendment) rules, 2021, the force was proposed by the order issued by the MA & UD Department. As per its draft rules, carrying single-use plastic (SUPs) and bags below 75 microns thickness will be banned. Also, the carrying of bags and SUPs below 120 microns thickness will also be banned from July 1, 2022. Presently, there is a ban on plastic bags of less than 50 microns within GHMC limits.


Based on the MAUD order, a series of activities have been planned, and these include replacing plastics with eco-sustainable materials. As a part of the exercise, the civic body has decided to help SHGs to get financial support through banks and push them to make cloth and jute bags instead.


Also, women will be provided a platform through exhibitions and fairs if they make environmentally sustainable products that can be replaced with plastics. Meanwhile, plastic manufacturers, mall owners, and other commercial establishments will be instructed to use alternatives to single-use plastic. GHMC’s task force will also implement awareness campaigns encouraging people to use environment-friendly bags.


As a part of the initiative, GHMC’s assistant medical officers of health (AOMH) will visit the meat shops and request people to bring along boxes to restrict the use of plastic bags.
