Officials also informed the court that the draft proposal has been okayed by the chief secretary during a meeting on October 26 and that it would soon be presented before the cabinet.

Common people have been asked to send in their feedback, objections and suggestions on the issue and once this is done the proposal will be presented before the state cabinet, an official informed IANS.

A bench of Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachur and Justice Yashwant Verma has asked the government to implement the ban before December 31.
