    The Central Government has prohibited the use of single-use plastics. The new law will go into effect on July 1. According to a press release from the Ministry of Environment, Forestry, and Climate Change, control rooms at the national and state levels are required for the effective enforcement of the ban on single-use plastics. The control rooms will also keep an eye on the illegal production and distribution of single-use plastics.
