India: SC not inclined to relax ban on plastic bags

New Delhi, Jan 29 (PTI) The Supreme Court today virtually ruled out the possibility of relaxing the ban imposed on use of plastic bags by the Delhi Government by stressing on the “havoc played” by them.

“Look at the hazards. plastic bags have been playing havoc in the country,” a bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices V S Sirpurkar and Deepak Verma said.

The bench said the ban on plastic bags would help in returning to good old days when people used to go the market with environment friendly bags made of cloth, jute and paper.

“If the ban is allowed to stand, same old habit will return. People will go with a bag in their hand. I go to market with a bag in my hand. What is the harm?” Justice Verma asked.
