The ministry of environment, forests & climate change, through a order issued in July 2015, banned import of all used plastic or PET bottles scrap in india by recycling plants in India and asked these units to rely on similar waste generated within the country from now on. This drastic move is part of a two -step drive to push for better waste management in India while at the same time prevents the country from turning into a dump yard for global waste.

The order, which was issued by the ministry’s Hazardous Substance Management (HSM) Division, followed a meeting of an expert committee held last May which rejected all proposals to import used PET and other plastic waste on grounds there was enough plastic scrap available in the country, most of which remains unutilised and therefore created a disposal issue.

Thanks for the best answer. kindly clarify about HS Code 39159042 under PET Bottle scrap that why it is freely importable? Although all other plastics are banned but this 39159042 is freely importable, then what this material actually is?
