Plastic manufacturers meet government authority over (EPR) policy

Monday, November 05, 2018

Even as plastic remains banned in Maharashtra and many other states in India, about 400 companies facing closure notices because of the ban have made an urgent representation to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) in Mumbai on Friday.

Highlighting the plight of the plastic industry in Maharashtra, these companies urged the MPCB authority to consider the ambiguities in the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policy, and called for withdrawal of the closure notices that had been slapped on them arbitrarily, while requesting for reasonable time in implementation of the EPR.

The Maharashtra Government, in amending the Maharashtra Plastic & Thermocol Production Notification 2018, had issued a notification on July 30 and introduced a concept of Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) – which the MPMA describes as ‘ambiguious.’

Ravi Jashnani, President, Maharashtra Plastic Manufacturers Associations (MPMA), while calling upon the government to withdraw the closure notices and undo seizures of all the affected units, said that the manufacturers should be given a reasonable time to respond and gear up for the same.
