A senior municipal corporation official on Tuesday informed that as per the letter received from the state government’s local government department, a complete ban would be imposed on polythene (plastic) carry bags and thermocol (excluding packing material) from April 1.

In a press note issued here, the official informed that the residents were already educated about the ban by installing hoardings in different parts of the city.

A complete ban would be imposed on manufacturing, stocking, distribution, reuse, selling and using polythene (plastic) carry bags and thermocol material that can be used only once.

Meanwhile, the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation has also appealed all residents to follow the ban as violators would attract strict legal action.
