Delhi to ban correction fluid
New Delhi: The Delhi government Friday sought a total ban on ink remover, popularly known as correction fluid, used for correcting typing mistakes. A statement issued to the press said the fluid is also used as a drug by students.
"The government is worried to see the extensive use of this whitener among young generation as a drug, which will destroy their life and it should be totally banned," said Education and Social Welfare Minister Kiran Walia.
"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.
