Under the Himachal Pradesh Non-Biodegradable Garbage (Control) Act of 1995, a fine up to Rs.25,000 will be imposed on any one who will use the non-degradable plastic bags. However, even after many years of the ban was implemented, one of the HW Community members clicked a picture of plastic bags being used for commercial purpose a few days ago and sent it to us.
