Sikkim has decided to ban packaged mineral water from January 1, 2022. Travellers should take note, and should not enter the state with any packaged mineral water bottle. The Government of Sikkim is working towards healing the environment and helping to save its natural resources.

Chief Minister of Sikkim, PS Tamango said, "blessed with natural resources that provide fresh and good quality drinking water."

The Chief Minister further said that after the ban, the state of Sikkim will replace the bottled drinking water with natural resources. This would be a healthier option. Chief Minister Tamang made this statement in a cleanliness drive on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.


The state government is working towards this goal, and making arrangements to stop the supply of bottled drinking water from outside. Sikkim has already banned packaged water bottles in some parts, such as Lachen in North Sikkim, which is a famous tourist destination.

According to Chief Minister Tamang, the state has natural water resources, and its requirements can be met from within the state. Therefore, eco-friendly initiatives should be taken.

Sikkim is a 100% organic state, so all its farms are certified organic. This surprising development came when the state outlawed the use of chemical fertilizers, and banned the sale and use of chemical pesticides.
