"We have moved the proposal to the government with documents of detailed studies, arguing for a ban. We will implement the orders in the capital city soon to curb the drug menace," Walia said.

The union Health and Family Welfare Ministry had, in July, brought out a notification banning the production of bottled correction fluids as well as bottled thinners of any chemical composition.
