Plastic collection Project -Lets implement
Now in Shimla if you deposit plastic waste at 34 designated locations government will pay you 15 Rs per KG.
Can Modi Govt please look at this now by starting with all districts in states ruled by them. That could cover 70% of India.
People will become plastic collectors. Over time with scale rate could go up to 25 per kg. more
1.Front line workforce of plastic ban need to be trained an explained the hazards. 2. "Selling waste plastic" is very good idea. 3. This will reduce burden on municipal staff. They can be directed to other jobs like Monsoon preparedness. more
Before introduction of GST law, rag pickers were working to collect plastic waste from various places but after GST, a high rate imposed and plastic waste rates reduced. Now hardly any picker is operating and the issue was also raised in newspapers but no action taken. Thus large quantity goes in garbage dumps creating lot of problems. Authorities go according to their own plans and public is treated as hindrance in there way and if they follow public suggestions, lot of corruption hole would be closed and budget will have to be spent on the actual work and progress will take place. Instead,old path of experts suggestion is followed to spend huge amount thereon and get some cut and spend a lot of time in study of proposal which take a prolong time due to some executive changes and restudy. No executive is ready or may be competent to take a decision for implementation. Secretaries and ministers have to restrict travel and committee meetings for devoting time to sanction, execute work, reviewing progress etc. otherwise projects would be pending or delayed for nothing but for inefficiency or corruption. Every government official should be made to report on daily basis the observations of previous day upto the time of reporting in office. There are various problems faced by them also like road damage, speed breakers, street lighting, water leakages / wastage, parking, shopping problems like overcharging,bills,quality, shortages etc. All such problems should be forwarded to relevant department. Websites are there but in very poor condition. Audits should be expanded in every area and have to change psychology of saving under the presumption of every thing in order as being done or supervised by me. Self appraisal is not feasible and third party experts can find the loopholes. Though some would be got eliminated by making wrong explainations initially but not all the time with more and more exposure. more
Plastic bag production must be banned in toto and users must be punished very heavily in public. more
The fine must be 5000/piece if a person is found using or depositing plastic or its waste. more
Though this job is already in existence but unorganized. Rag pickers, kabadwalas, recycling industry if brought under one umbrella by making it an organised sector. The skill development scheme by central government can make RECYCLING industry more lucrative as home based with little investment supported by MUDRA loans and MARKETING facilities. This would bring a big change in waste management in all cities and even villages. more
