The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has set up an expert committee to probe whether there is a need for further norms to restrict plastic packaging of food products.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel formed the panel which comprises representatives of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), Bureau of Indian Standards, Central Pollution Control Board and Directorate General of Health Services. 

FSSAI will be the nodal agency for coordination. The committee will submit its report within three months by e-mail. The NGT was hearing a petition filed by an NGO seeking a ban on the use of plastic bottle and multi-layered plastic packages. The next hearing on the matter is on October 14.
