Electronic and Electrical wastes specifically know as E-waste is growing at a very high rate throughout the world but especially in developing countries like India. It is predicted that India is likely to generate about 52 million tons of E-waste in 2020 which will be about 40% of the entire E-waste generated in the world at that time. The following article denotes the importance of this humongous growth, its effects on the environment and on us, the humans. The importance of various industrial methods and method of regulating the e-waste at a local governing level especially in India has also been suggested.
