On March 12, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) received a notification from the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) instructing them to step up their monitoring of the production, sale, use, and exchange of prohibited single-use plastic.

The civic bodies have been directed to establish special teams to carry out the prohibition. According to the Maharashtra Degradable and Non-Degradable Waste (Control) Act, 2006, the Ministry of Forest and Environment enforced the ban.

The board has also mandated that a report on the action taken be provided within ten days of the notification being sent out.

Officials from the solid waste department of the Pune Municipal Corporation said that four monitoring vans and fifteen teams remain in operation.
