E-Waste in India Increasing at Alarming Rate: Parliamentary Panel

NEW DELHI: Noting that the volume of e-waste in the country was increasing at an alarming rate, a parliamentary panel has recommended creation of a legislative and enforcement mechanism to prevent India from becoming a dumping ground of e-waste for developed nations.

Stating that e-waste management is a huge global problem, the committee said there were numerous reports indicating that e-wastes are being shipped to developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America from developed nations under the garb of "used goods" to pass on the hazards associated with it and to "avoid" the cost of legitimate recycling.

"The committee recommends the creation of necessary legislative and enforcement mechanism to prevent the country from becoming one of the dumping grounds of e-waste for developed nations," the committee on Demands for Grants (2015-16) for Environment Ministry said.
