Urgent - 121,000 metric ton plastic waste being imported

More than 1,21,000 metric tonne (MT) of plastic waste is being “slyly” imported in India by companies and recyclers, which is adversely affecting the efforts to curtail plastic pollution.

The Indian recyclers and plastic companies are slyly importing used PET plastic bottles in the form of flakes and lumps.

I request members of this circle to get active and escalate this issue to ministry of environment .

Also localcircles seems to be in news regularly and should write to finance ministry to stop this in customs.

India in many terms is waist treatment house for so many developed countries.This is because of cheap labour and unemployment. more  
Ms Agarwal,

I appreciate your concern.

Now realize, as to what government is upto.
This is New India -- a waste bin for European world.

Nothing will happen only life will deteriorate and go under financial burden day by day , every day.

Commerce and Finance Ministry officials are either sleeping or ...... WAKE UP THE MINISTRIES . WE WILL NOT ALLOW INFILTRATORS AND SO THE TOXIC SUBSTANCE . more  
First identify who are the individuals getting this stuff,What are they doing with this stuff & who are the owners of this business.Everything will come in place as no one is stopping them more
