New norms for use of plastic bags

Don’t be surprised if some months later the grocer also bills you for the plastic bag he used to supply free of charge. It could vary from 50 paise for a small one to Rs 5 for a carry bag. The bag though will be thicker and more durable. According to the new norms of plastic usage, all types of plastic carry bag manufacturers will have to get themselves registered with Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB). They will have to print the name of the manufacturer on every bag. Moreover, local civic authorities will fix the rates of these plastic bags.
