As part of its cleanliness and environment awareness drive, officials of the Rajkot Municipal Corporation seized 20 kg of prohibited polyethylene bags from four different vegetable markets of the city. The official also fined a hospital for dumping medical waste in a public dustbin. According to an RMC notification, inferior quality polyethylene bags below 20 micron thickness are not allowed to be used with within city limits, but vegetable vendors frequently use them and pollute the city.
