E-waste Rules have been in force since May 2012. Have the Producers, the key stakeholders responsible for implementing the Rules, have done what was required? Are there takeback mechanisms in place for e-waste collection? State Pollution Control Boards, which are the monitoring agencies- have they taken steps to make sure that the Rules have been implemented properly?
'Time to Reboot' tries to find answers for some of these questions.
It raises serious concern on the current system and questions if it is time to reboot the system and find more effective ways for better e-waste management.
