The Indian state of Maharashtra has been getting to grips with its ban on all single-use plastics. While the ban is reported to have been largely effective, there have been complaints about enforcement, difficulties with a buy-back scheme, and a partial rollback of rules for small stores. Declining milk sales have also led to a strike by suppliers.
The Maharashtra ban began
on 23 June, just three months after its notification. In the meantime, it has had to survive a court challenge. And a helpline was needed to ensure the collection of banned items prior to enactment.
Maharashtra, whose capital is Mumbai, is India's second most populous state with more than 112 million people living there.
