If you think it is cool to sip tea or coffee or get a juice in plastic cups near BMTC bus depots and stops, you may end up being proved wrong. The BMTC has banned single-use plastic in its premises.
BMTC managing director C Shikha has sent a circular to all bus depots and division controllers demanding that they adhere to stricter implementation of the ban on single-use plastic. BBMP Commissioner, BH Anil Kumar also appreciated and welcomed this step from the BMTC .
However, activists have expressed doubt on the better implementation of this rule in BMTC premises as despite previous efforts by the BBMP, many shops and stalls still sell banned plastic items.
