Rice traders fined for not using jute sacks
A mobile court has fined five traders a total of Tk16,000 for using plastic sacks instead of the ones made of jute in rice packaging in Monirampur upazila, Jessore. The mobile court of executive magistrate and Monirampur upazila Assistant Commissioner (land) Hossain Muhammad Al-Mujahid carried out a drive at Chalbazar and fined the errant traders on Tuesday morning. The move by the mobile court prompted the traders’ community to hold an instant protest rally. They also announced to shut down all the shops in the town. On Tuesday was the National Jute Day, and it was observed around the nation with various colorful events. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina called on the nation to take part in unlocking the potentials of jute and jute products. Hossain Muhammad Al-Mujahid told the Dhaka Tribune that the traders were served a prior reminder about the drive, which was conducted to mark the National Jute Day. “We’ve already discussed with the protesting businessmen. It was agreed that the shops will be opened. They have also pledged to ensure the usage of jute bags instead of plastic bags within one month.” According to the Mandatory Jute Packaging Act 2010, which has been enforced since January 2014, all essential commodities must be packaged in bags made of jute. Violators face punishment of a maximum of one year in jail or a fine of Tk50,000 or both for using non-biodegradable synthetics for packaging.
