The Himachal Pradesh High Court on Friday reserved its judgement on the banning of 25 junk food items sold in plastic packaging in the state.
The ban on junk food items like chips, Kurkure, biscuits and noodles etc, sold in plastic/non-biodegradable packaging was imposed on June 26 but had to come into force on July 1, 2013 as per orders of the High Court.
However after three leading manufacturers and distributors of items falling in the banned list filed a petition in the high court, the June 26 notification was stayed.
On Friday, the division bench comprising Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice V K.Sharma –before whom the case was listed for hearing – directed that the interim stay order on the notification will continue till the pronouncement of judgement.
The petitioners included M/s Sanyukt Vyapar Mandal Khalini, Indian Biscuits Manufacturers Association, NOIDA, and Haroli Block Industries Associations, Tahliwal Una.
