Mumbai: BMC to revoke hawkers’ license for using banned plastic

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will start cancelling licenses of hawkers if they are found using or selling banned plastic. The step is taken after it has been observed that hawkers across the city are selling their products in banned plastic carry bag.

According to a civic official, there is a notification from the state government that has a provision of revoking the licence of licenses of shops and hawking stalls for violating the law. At present, the BMC is collecting Rs 5,000 fine from violators.
