Chandigarh, May 12
After putting ban on the use of polythene in the city, the UT Administration is now considering prohibiting use of flexible plastic containers as well. But the inflow of polythene from the neighbouring Panchkula and Mohali has in a way beaten the very purpose of banning the use of polythene.

Yesterday a meeting was held of the members of Chandigarh Beopar Mandal (CBM) and others with UT Finance Secretary Sanjay Kumar. Possibilities of imposing a ban on flexible plastic containers used for food packaging and also industrial packaging was discussed.
