Bhubaneswar: Reitering the state government’s commitment towards creating a plastic free environment, the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) has decided to ban plastic in its main office, parks and BDA market complexes across the city from September 1 on the occasion of its 36th Foundation Day.

Last month the state government had announced plastic ban in five municipal corporations and the Holy town Puri which will be effective from 2nd October this year.

Right inside the office at Akash Sobha Building on Sachivalaya Marg of BDA drinking water fountains would be in place on each floor from September 1, its foundation day. Reverse-osmosis (RO) purified chilled and normal water fountains will be available on all floors so that the employees would not use plastic bottles.

As per the decision made by BDA, there will be no use of plastic folders and instead only paper or cloth folders to be used during meetings. No plastic bottles to be used during meetings as well.

All the employees would be asked not to use plastic food packets and staff will have to carry their own lunch boxes and containers, preferably made of metal. Carry bags only of cloth/paper only to be used inside the office premises.
