Banning use of plastic is no use. For that we have to have police for each citizen. Better is to stop manufacture of those single use plastic items. If it is not available no one can use . more  
First of all Govt should ban Manufacturing of these items,then whole salers and distributers should also be banned.Then only any act will be effective. more  
The licence issuing authorities must take the responsibility. more  
Since Health is Wealth, any plastic packaging used for food and medicine should be banned. more  
When GoI is not going to Ban manufacturing any plastic items this debate is waste of time. more
