Election Commission Instructs All Parties to Go for Plastic-Free Election Campaign

In the backdrop of India’s commitment to eliminate all single-use plastic in the country by 2022, the Election Commission has asked all political parties and contesting candidates to desist from using environmentally hazardous material like plastics in banners, hoardings, cut-outs and other poll-related articles during upcoming general elections.

It has issued detailed instructions in this regard and directed chief electoral officers (CEOs) to ensure its compliance through district election officers and returning officers by taking political parties and candidates on board.
