The ban on single-use plastic came into effect on Friday despite requests by the industry associations not to impose a blanket ban but implement it in a phased manner. Now, the state governments have been asked by the Union Ministry of Environment to initiate an enforcement campaign. Several goods that use single-use plastic have been outlawed as of Friday. Cutlery items such as plates, cups, glasses, forks, spoons, knives, trays, are included.
