Several vendors in Ghaziabad have adopted steel utensils in place of plastic plates, cups, bowls, spoons etc after Municipal Commissioner Dinesh Chandra Singh took over and enforced the ban on plastic as mandated by Govt. of UP.
In keeping with this a street vendor at Pratap Vihar’s Lilavati Chowk in Vijay Nagar was found to be selling vegetarian biryani & other eatables and was serving the same to his customers on steel utensils. The vendor has also kept a proper dustbin for disposing of the waste. Seeing this, Singh complimented the vendor and felicitated him by handing over steel utensils and a token amount of Rs 51. Four other vendors were also felicitated in the same manner.
