The E-waste is another problem for newly formed Indian Govt. just like inflation, corruption and over population. There millions of people in the country who can afford the valuable Smartphone and other devices but the e-waste just not comes from individuals but also from the companies who’s going large and expanding their services. In order to do that they need big chuck of hardware, which will replaces the existing one and then comes the problem, there are still lack of e-waste recycling and proper disposal in the India. Individual just keep the electronics until they actually turn into garbage and then they throw it or either sell it to several plastic and garbage collectors, they again sell it to big one and all the matter just go to one landfill to another. According to a firm which rates other Hardware producers on the basis of their management of the scrap, had rate very poor the globally popular Apple, Phillips, Samsung and other. So why they are taking this lightly, because India is still so far from the WEEE legislation and don’t follow the proper methods to dispose or recycling.
