Uttar Pradesh has banned plastic carry bags and single-use plastic cutlery three times in the past four years but has failed to implement the ban effectively so far.

Lack of a proper disposal and segregation mechanism, poor enforcement of rules and continued consumer demand is leading to the mounting plastic waste.
