“All principals are directed to ensure that students in their respective schools do not use any kind of plastic cover or film for their books or notebooks,” said an order by the Directorate of Education (DoE).

“This is of importance in view of the upcoming new academic session when students purchase new text books and notebooks for their new class,” it said, following certain grievances in this regard shared by some environment activists.
