The electric field by an uniformly charged infinite plane is independent of distance but practically if we move away from the charged plane electric filed should decrease. Why is it so?

Hi
Consider a finite plate as a collection of finite line charge.
Now for a finite line charge and for easier calculation and demonstration assume you finding E at middle.
In practical situation you can't practically assume it to be an infinite line charge without errors.
