Maharashtra Plastic Ban: Check credential of inspector before paying fine, says BMC

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has appealed to the Mumbaikars to be cautious and check the credentials of the official before paying fine if they are caught using banned plastic.

In order to secure people from getting conned in the name of collecting banned plastic, the civic body has issued some identification of inspectors appointed to collect fine. Appointed inspectors designated to impose fine will have a dress code and will be assigned an authority letter and identity card, which determine an official’s eligibility. The designated 249 inspectors from three departments — license, markets and shops and establishments — of BMC, will wear navy blue vests and will have an authority letter to collect fines.
