In a laudable decision, the Chhattisgarh government has prohibited items made out of poly vinyl chloride and chlorine laden plastic like flex, banners and posters with immediate effect.
Government has issued a notification in this regard. With this, not only sale but stocking of such items also has become illegal.
All of these items have been identified as causing grave damage to the environment due to which they now stand banned products.
In case of violation. the district Collector, SDM or even the local Environment Officer will be competent enough to take action as per law.>
