Maharashtra High on E-Waste, Ranks Low on Recycling

Maharashtra generates the most e-waste in the country, but ranks very low on recycling it. According to the report jointly published by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) and Japan's NEC, India produces 2 million tonnes of electronic waste per annum and recycles 438,085 tonnes. Among Indian states, Maharashtra generates the most e-waste (19 per cent or 3.96 lakh tonnes), but recycles only 47,810 tonnes, according to the report. This is the highest among all the states, stated the report. Among other states, Tamil Nadu produces 13 per cent of India's e-waste and recycles 52,427 tonnes (10.9 per cent), and Uttar Pradesh (10.1 per cent) recycles 86,130 tonnes (19.7 per cent). The Assocham-NEC report states that India produces the most e-waste, ahead of countries, such as China, USA, Japan, and Germany. The overall volume of e-waste in India is growing at a rate of 20 per cent per annum.
