FSSAI-plastic ban

Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) will soon be coming out with a report on draft guidelines to achieve plastic ban in India that they have already submitted to NGT (National Green Tribunal).

Various ministries are now actively working towards successful achievement of this goal. The Union Minister of Consumer Affairs Food and Public Distribution, Ram Vilas Paswan recently announced a blanket ban on all types of single use plastic products in the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and all its PSUs including Food Corporation of India (FCI).

The decision on this was taken in a high level meeting with Secretaries of both the Departments i.e. Consumer Affairs and Food, CMD FCI, DG Bureau of India Standards, MD of CWC, Director Legal Metrology along with other senior officials of the Ministry. It was decided that all single use plastic products will be completely banned in Ministry and its PSUs from 15th September.

Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan asked the officials to make alternate arrangements to ensure that the ban is effective.
