The electronics waste (e-waste) comprises of discarded electrical and electronic equipment, and poses serious challenges globally for improper disposal practices especially in informal sector.

Hon’ble PM has emphasized the need for creating awareness for environmental issues under “Swach Digital Bharat’ during his address at NASSCOM event on 01.03.2015. On the direction of Hon’ble PM, MeitY has initiated the “Awareness Programme on Environmental Hazards of Electronic Waste through Digital India Initiative” over a period of five years to create awareness among the public about the hazards of e-waste recycling by the informal sector and educate them about alternate methods of disposing their e-waste.

Over 95 per cent of e-waste generated is managed by the informal sector. Integration of the informal sector and access to environmentally safe recycling technologies may reduce the health and environmental hazards. In addition to technology, capacity building, skill management, scientific recycling mechanism, business management training are also required for safe recycling of e-waste.

In this context, MeitY is inviting citizen inputs to provide solution for leakage of E-Waste in the informal sector, and suggest proper recycling technology for E-Waste that is economically available.

The last date of submission of suggestions is 4th April, 2018.

For any further information about E-Waste, please visit the GREENE website.

I belong to rural background of india.I have seen many e-waste products like mobile or laptop euippmemts,are being thrown out by many people.But,once I suggest them to collect all the e-waste and sold it to the market.but,they told me that no will purchase it.Who will waste the time to let these things into markest for sell.
So,From this experience, I would recommend two suggestions-
1.Govt.should establish e-waste collector industries in every districts.
2.reward the seller.

Waste for one person is a treasure for another person.Hence an ecommerce web site can be created and sell them to needy for example, the students doing their final year projects and scientists in research work.Why not the companies can afford the waste products and repair, use them in their new production. I will surely decrease the e-waste and also the production cost of the product.Recycling plants have been set up all our the nation to recycle the electrical wastes.

Proper leakage and proper Recycling of e-waste can be possible by use of e-waste through recycling every part of old products this is possible by stop manufacturing cheap quality product and also stop import cheap quality product by china and by various steps should be taken by taking back the old product by the company at lower prices so that people cant throw them .
