HC refuses to stay ban on plastic bags.
A division bench declined to entertain senior advocate Arvind Nigam's submission on behalf of plastic manufactures in the city.
The petition claimed that the manufacturing of plastic bags would jeopardise livelihoods of lakhs of people directly and indirectly associated with the plastic bags industry and the business of petitioner and constituent members shall come to a standstill. The bench, however, said it would dispose of the matter within few days and listed the matter for hearing on November 27.
According to the notification which came into effect from Friday, no person can manufacture, import, store, sell or transport any kind of plastic bag in the city.
