Proposal cleared for 191-km stretch of NH 209 in Karnataka.

Packing of groceries, food items and other products in polythene bags, which is harmful to the environment, is a common scene.

Neither the people are ready to use conventional bags nor the City Municipal Council is creating awareness among the people about avoiding use of plastic, resulting in plastic garbage dumps along roads and in vacant sites in residential areas. Although the use of plastic products lesser than 40 microns have been banned in district, the CMC is least bothered about its implementation.
