The Delhi High Court Thursday asked the government to explain why it has banned manufacturing of plastic bags in the city.
"How can you impose a total ban on manufacturing? Unless you say plastic (bag) manufacturing industry in itself is hazardous, how can you ban plastic (bag) manufacturing," asked a division bench of Chief Justice D. Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw.
Hearing a plea filed by the All India Plastic Industries Association, the court asked whether any study was carried out before imposing the ban.
