Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KCDL) in collaboration with the Green Team Kohima invited the Kohima Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI) for a consultative meeting under the “100 days Smart City Special Initiative Campaign on Sanitation” and also in pursuance to the government order on ban of plastic on August 16, 2019 in the chamber of the KMC administrator and CEO, KSCDL to discuss and draw out strategies for implementation and enforcement of the plastic ban.

At the meeting, KMC administrator & CEO Kovi Meyase reminded that only a month was left for the ban to come into force i.e. September 17, 2019. He said that the whole issue of plastic ban would not be possible without the inputs and efforts of the KCCI. Meyase pointed out the need to rope in all stakeholders for the implementation to be successful. 

While NGOs like the Green Team Kohima were taking all efforts to create awareness, it was felt that KCCI has a very important role in generating awareness and helping enforce the ban. 

Deliberating on how best to go about in implementing and enforcing the ban on plastic, the members decided that since the District Task Force headed by DC Kohima has been entrusted with the responsibility of monitoring and vigilance purpose, the task force may first be consulted. 

The members then decided to put forward some suggestions and practical action plan for the perusal and incorporation by the task force.
