The Bombay High Court has dismissed plea that sought to defer finalisation of rules by the state that would make it mandatory to store and sell alcohol only in glass bottles. The state has amended its rules under the Maharashtra Prohibition Act to stop the use of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles for alcohol storage and sale.
All India Plastic Manufacturers Association and the distiller's association of Maharashtra had rushed to court to stay the legislative making process of the proposed draft rules. A July 10 state notification had set July 25 as the deadline for receiving suggestions and objections over the new draft rules. Senior counsels Milind Sathe and Janak Dwarkadas appearing for these association said the state ought to defer finalization of any such rule till the court decides a challenge pending since last year
