You are posted as the District Magistrate in the Beed district of Maharashtra. Recently, in accordance with the nationwide ban on “Single-Use Plastic”, you’ve been allocated with the responsibility to ensuring that the ban is being implemented efficiently throughout the district. A few days after the notification of the ban, your office has organised a “Press Conference” to give out information on the candidates who had withdrawn from the assembly elections. During the conference, tea was being served to all the media officials present, when an official interrupted the ongoing by pointing out that “While national ban on single-use plastic is being practiced, the glasses used to serve the tea in DM’s office are of plastic", questioning the efficiency of the office.
Considering the situation where you were responsible for ensuring the ban, and facing the question on the efficiency of the ban implementation, what would’ve been your instant response to the question raised during the conference?
What short & long terms measures would you’ve taken to ensure that the plastic ban is being implemented effectively?
