The ban includes all plastic cutlery, bags, plates, cups and packaging.

According to the India Times, the nation is responsible for roughly 60% of the plastic that is annually dumped into the world's oceans.

Several of India's waste-to-energy plants have also reportedly been contributing to the city's air pollution by burning large amounts of plastic waste.

"Each of these sites is a depiction of the mess that can be created for environment and health of people of Delhi," The Tribunal said in a statement. "We direct that use of disposable plastic is prohibited in entire NCT of Delhi. The Delhi government shall take steps for storage and use of plastic materials."
