These units have now been asked to make necessary application for registration and consent under Water and Air Act within 30 days.
In a notice issued on September 10, the GSPCB has stated that “under Rule 13 (1) of Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016, no person shall manufacture carry bags or recycled plastic bags or multilayer packaging unless the person has obtained a registration from the SPCB on the Pollution Control Committee is of the UT, as the case may be, prior to the commencement of production”.
