||Oct.-Dec. 2002, Vol.XXXIII, No.3, p.84-90.
||The Hazardous Wastes (Management and Handling) Rules 1989 were promulgated under the Environment (Protection) Act 1986 and amended in 2000. The main objective of these regulations was to establish a control mechanism for the generation, collection, transport, storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes and to prevent the import of hazardous waste. This article presents the current situation in India with respect to hazardous waste management. The Indian regulatory framework on recycling and waste disposal is summarized, including rules applicable to bio-medical waste and lead batteries. The Indian perspective concerning the Basel convention on the control of trans-boundary movements of hazardous wastes and their disposal is discussed.
