KSIA opposes administration’s move to ban plastic
MANGALORE: The Kanara Small Industries Association (KSIA) has opposed imposition of ban on Plastic Carry bags and Plastic articles in Dakshina Kannada District from November 15. B A Nazeer, president, KSIA said this is a shocking news on the industry in the district where more than 50 small scale industries have made investments with financial assistance from various banks and financial institutions like Karnataka State Financial Corporation.
Besides this a large number of workers, most of whom are women have been employed in the industries with life time facilities like insurance and Provident Fund. Any blanket ban on use of plastic carry bags in the district will not only effects entrepreneurs financially but also financial institutions. A localized ban will not yield any results but will be an injustice the entrepreneurs of Dakshina Kannada district, Nazeer contended.
