Paints with high lead content still being sold in the country, says a Toxics Link study

Kolkata, 8 February, 2019: Lead in paint is a global issue and considering the quantum of health impacts, many countries have phased out lead from their paints. Even though in India Lead in Paint regulations were notified back in 2016 and came into force in November 2017, the country has a long way to go in order to reach the desired compliance levels. Although the leading brands had shifted, the Small and Medium scale Enterprises (SMEs) are still a matter of concern for the country.
