A a city-based non-government organisation for waste management has moved the high court against the use of polyester-based excise adhesive labels on liquor bottles.

The petitioner challenged the use of these labels saying that they were non-biodegradable and non-recoverable.
The petitioner sought the courts direction to quash the impugned tender notification for the production of polyester-based holographic excise adhesive labels vide tender issued on January 3, by the state excise department for the production of polyester-based excise adhesive label instead of paper-based hologram embedded excise adhesive label.
The matter was adjourned to Tuesday.
