Abstract:India does not have any specific regulatory framework for management of household battery waste. Its mere mention in the solid waste management rules as ‘domestic hazardous waste’ and mandate for segregation has never really served either purpose of segregation or management of end-of-life household batteries. This fact is quite evident from the studies in Jharkhand and Rajasthan. Voluntary action by battery manufacturers is also almost absent in the states. In the current situation, the entire battery waste load is ending up in the landfill, wasting the resources as well.
