Entrepreneurs and consumers have supported the campaign, therefore, it has effectively run, said Lalchan Gonba, chairman of Dhankuta Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The campaign was launched from May 2013 by forming a monitoring committee that has decided to charge a fine of Rs. 1,000 on people selling polythene bags and Rs. 200 on people buying such bags, said Bijay Santoshi Rai, coordinator of the campaign.

Likewise, as many as 36 sellers and 76 buyers who violated the rule have been punished.
