TAPMA Plans Huge Demonstration on 13th Dec. for Withdrawal of Plastics Ban

  The Tamil Nadu Plastics Manufacturers’ Association (TAPMA) representing the interests of 8000+ plastics industries in Tamil Nadu, plans for a huge demonstration on 13th December for immediate withdrawal of plastics ban to be implemented w.e.f 1/1/2019. “Thousands of people from plastic and allied industries are expected to participate,” said Mr. B. Swaminathan, Chairman - Environment Committee, TAPMA, during a press meet held to announce on the upcoming demonstration. Mr. Virendra Bhayani, Mr. Brij Khandelwal, Mr. Rakkappan and Mr. Venkateswara Rao, Office bearers of TAPMA were others present. “The Tamil Nadu Government’s plan to ban single use plastics is not a right decision and will badly hurt the plastic industries and livelihood of workers. It is unfortunate that instead of taking a considered decision based on scientific facts, the state government has chosen to announce the ban under Rule 110 in the Tami Nadu assembly, as a pet project, and the same is reluctantly being implemented by the officials of various departments,” he added while listing out the shortcomings of the GO. 1. The GO is discriminatory in nature and allows the use of plastics in many Government Departments and the same is being banned for use by general public and private sectors. Example: Plastics bags supplied to Government Departments of Forestry and Horticulture are exempted whereas the same plastic bags supplied to co-operatives and private sector or individual farmers are banned. 2. The GO bans all form of plastics packaging including by small retail outlets, grocery shops, whereas the same is permitted for MNCs and FMCG companies. This will hit the business of over 200,000 small vendors hawkers, shops, hotels, restaurants, sweet shops, etc 3. This selective ban for small business and traders is discriminatory in nature 4. The GO bans the manufacture of several plastics items in TN denying the fundamental rights to do business with other states where such bans are not in place 5. The GO lacks clarity in many aspects and the Government is not able to offer proper explanation. This will lead to utter chaos and harassment of the industries and retailers, etc 6. The Government has not consulted the stakeholders like the manufacturers, user industry and trade bodies 7. The Government has not discharged its obligations- creating infrastructure for collection, segregation and facilitation of all waste (including plastics waste) - as per of Plastics Waste Management Rules 2016 and Solid Waste Management Rules 2016, before issuing this GO
