Subject: Rising e waste in India


I would like to express my views on the rising e-waste in India. As we know
new technologies makes our life better, but with the adoption of new gadgets,
the older ones becomes obsolete and are discarded eventually. This amounts to
the rising electronic waste. India is the fifth largest producer of e-waste
generating 18 lakh tonnes of e-waste every year, according to a study.
With the advent of LCD technology,
CRT monitors and TVs became obsolete and became part of e-waste. Similarly
older phones disused with the rise of smartphones in India. India is the
world’s second largest mobile market, there are about 100 crore mobile phones
in India, out of which 25% end up in waste annually.
E-waste contains harmful substances
like lead, mercury and cadmium which not only pollutes the environment but also
causes serious health problems.
The government has notified e-waste
management rules in which the producer will have the responsibilities of waste
collection. But the problem is that the majority of e-waste is handled by
unorganised sector, this will make it difficult for companies to comply with
the rules.
The government should implement these
rules in a phased manner so that alarming rate of e-waste can be handled

      With due respect
I would like to draw your attention towards the growing e-waste in India for
the past few years. A recent study reveals that India which is the second
largest producer of mobile phones in the world also ranks fifth in producing
      With more than
100 crore mobile phones in circulation in the current scenario, almost 25% of
those end up in e-waste annually. With the advent of technological
transformation, people are buying the latest technology electronic gadgets,
dumping the old and obsolete ones. With lack of proper recycling facilities
these e-waste generate hazardous chemicals and gases which are ultimately
carried off in rivers or remain in the atmosphere for long durations thus
creating respiratory and other problems to living beings.
       It is crystal
clear now, if the environment ministry doesn’t take appropriate steps in
curbing the harmful effects of improper recycling and dumping of e waste then
we all have to pay its price in the coming future. It is our responsibility
also to spread the awareness among people and companies for the proper dumping
of e waste at the approved recycling factories.
       I would be
grateful if your paper also highlight this alarming situation and make people
aware of this.
Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,
