|New e-waste regulations have come into force in India in May 2012, and are expected to improve the state of e-waste management in the country. Funds for management are expected to be provided by waste generators themselves, as e-waste falls under the scope of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) laws. However, there is still room for improvement; the new regulations need to be supported by better coordination among the private and public sector (such as manufacturers, consumers, collection agencies and regulatory authorities). Technical and scientific capacity-building, including the development of innovative technologies on the recovery of precious metals from e-waste, would also be welcomed. Finally, public awareness of the hazards of e-waste is not yet comprehensive, and also is an area where capacity- building is much needed.
