“The utilization of plastic packs under 75 microns of thickness will be prohibited in West Bengal from July 1. Anyone utilizing plastic underneath that level will be fined,” Hakim told correspondents.

He said that the Central Pollution Control Board has set a rule on the thickness of plastic parcels, forbidding the utilization of plastic convey packs and coverings having thickness under 75 microns from July 1.

“We have coursed the notice across offices and implementing organizations,” the priest said.

From July 1, venders will be fined Rs 500 while buyers need to hack up Rs 50 on the off chance that they are found utilizing plastic parcels with a thickness under 75 microns, he said.
