Abstract:This paper attempts to make an assessment and policy recommendation for the Indian perspective through a cross‐national review of current practice and policy. It also addresses in a transition economy with some reference to policies and practices in other transition economies. It has been shown that existing Hazardous Waste Rules could overturn the necessity of a separate national legislation dealing with e‐waste alone after it is being configured to accommodate e‐waste for its management in India. The regulatory approach proposed could serve as a model or at least a starting point for other transition countries that may not be so far along as India with respect to management of e‐waste.
