Single Use Plastic Ban Items List

Indian Government imposed a ban on single-use plastics on items ranging from straws to cigarette packets to combat worsening pollution in the nation of nearly 1.4 billion people. The ban on single-use plastic items includes straws, cutlery, earbuds, packaging films, plastic sticks for balloons, candy and ice cream, and cigarette packets, among other products, the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a statement.

The ban on Single-Use Plastics (SUP) by the Centre in order to reduce plastic wastage comes into effect from 1st July 2022. Single-use plastics are usually items that are discarded after being used only once and do not go through the recycling process. These kinds of plastics are often not disposed of appropriately and cannot be recycled as well.  According to a report on Plastic Waste Management released by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, the global average of plastic per capita consumption is 28 kg and India has a per capita plastic consumption of 11 kg. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) Report (2019-20) states that 3.5 million metric tonnes of plastic waste are generated in India annually.
