Is plastic bag ban for the environment or new way of earning for mega stores?

I found the problem four years back and yet it is unanswered! For detailed problem analysis and solution read further...

I come across this question every time when I buy something from mega stores (malls)  and many of you might have. As there are no mega stores in my city I used to shop from mega stores in Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Surat, etc. therefore, it is not possible for me to carry my own carry bag all the time. In all these stores, nowadays started a trend of charging 3 to 10 Rs for various size of plastic bags which are the same they provide to their customers (us) for free in the past. I think this becoming the new way of earning for megastores.

so now the question arises is,
  • Why they are charging for the same quality plastic bag to save the environment?
  • How by charging this small amount they save the environment?
  • Do they really think that the person who shops for thousands of rupees is really cared of spending 3 or 10 rupees?
These are some of the questions I have with this initiative. I figure out the solution as well. If they really want to save environment they should use good quality paper bags ranging from 50-500 Rupees so plastic bag use can be stopped and even many people carry their own bags to save such a significant amount and if they want to pay that amount then also our problem has solved. Isn't it?
