The Delhi government has directed all schools in the national capital to prevent students from using plastic covers for their notebooks or books.
The Delhi High Court has ordered ban on use of plastic bags and other such material.
”All principals are directed to ensure that students in their respective schools do not use any kind of plastic cover or film for their books or notebooks,” the Directorate of Education (DoE) stated in its order.
The order has been issued in the wake of environmental concerns and in view of the new academic session soon to begin.
”This is of immediate importance in view of the upcoming new academic session when students purchase new books and notebooks for their new class,” it added.
