Ground Level Report On Plastic Bag Ban in Hyderabad

Though the ban on single-use plastic came into existence on July 1, the ground-level report suggests that neither the general public nor the shop vendors have taken the restrictions seriously as the usage of plastic bags still exists in the city.


The usage of plastic bags at vegetable stalls, mandis, grocery supermarkets, stalls, and street food centers is carried on at a normal basis despite the limit set by the Ministry of Environment to use thinner than 75 microns bags in public places.


When asked the vendors about the same, they say that the major reason for the prevalence of single-use plastic is affordability, lack of other alternatives, and awareness among the citizens on the plastic ban. Though alternative bags like jute, cloth, or paper are there, they are available at the cost of 25 to 30. On the other hand, plastic covers are thinner than 75 microns available on the market at a price of 5 per pack. Public and shop vendors opinion that instead of imposing fine on them, the government can simply reduce the usage of plastic by restricting the supply of plastic from the manufacturing industries.


As of now, the GHMC officials are imposing a penalty of Rs 5000 on the shop and vegetable vendors to restrict the usage of plastic, but this is not the proper way to reduce the usage until the supply is stopped completely; opinion some NGOs organizations.
