No office shall be found to be in use or possession of below 50 micron plastic bags as mandated in Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, the guidelines said.

It was mandated that all offices follow the twin bin system and dispose of plastic waste strictly in compliance of Solid Waste Management Rules, 2000 and guidelines of Central Pollution Control Board towards plastic disposal.

The heads of department must make efforts to create awareness among all stakeholders on spreading knowledge about the harm caused by single use plastic to the environment and promote sustainable environmental practices.
