Raipur : The Chhattisgarh government has banned the use of chlorinated plastic and short-life Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) in the state.

The advertising and promotion of materials like PVC banners, flex, and hoardings have also been banned with immediate effect.

The state government has also banned the manufacture, storage, import, sale, transport and use of such plastic-borne goods.

The latest notification in this effect has been issued by the Department of Housing and Environment.

“From the Article 48-A of the Constitution of India, it is expected that every state will try to conserve and improve the environment. But these plastic-borne goods cause blockages in drains and gutters, leading to serious environmental problems,” the notification read. (ANI)
