Polythene ban near national monuments


Polythene banThe Union government has decided to completely ban use of plastics at national monuments and tourist destinations from October 2 as a part of Swachh Bharat Mission. Boards will be erected at monuments and tourist destinations about polythene ban.  Officials are hopeful that polythene ban can be effectively implemented as all the tourist destinations and world heritage spots have enough security personnel to check the visitors/ tourists at the entrances. Plastic bottles will not be banned and tourists should dispose them in the recycle boxes at the destinations. It may be noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the Swachh Bharat Mission on October 2, 2014.
