The Maharashtra government in India has decided to partially roll back its plastic ban policy, allowing all single-use items made of compostable plastic and bags made of polypropylene of not less than 60 grams per square meter. Plastic items of less than 50 microns used by industries for packaging will also be allowed, but only if it can be proven that the plastic ban is affecting their productivity. The decision is in line with the central government’s policy on plastic ban. An amended notification to this effect will be issued soon after approval from the Chief Minister’s office, reports Hindustan Times.
