A wrong impression is being created that presently there is no Indian paper mill that can manufacture the required paper for making paper straws," A S Mehta, president of the Indian Paper Manufacturers Association (IPMA) said in a statement. The government’s ban on single-use plastic, including plastic straws, starts on July 1, 2022.

The paper industry said in a statement that there is enough capacity and technological knowhow to manufacture paper for making paper straws in India. This follows statements over the past few weeks by FMCG companies that the capacity required for making straws is not available in India.
Companies scramble for imported paper straws, ask govt to extend plastic ban deadline.
