The largest democracy voted the ‘E-waste (Management and Handling) Rules’ back in 2011. This regulation addresses both the presence of hazardous substances (RoHS) in electronics and their waste (WEEE).
As a result, one single law imposes limitations of certain substances as well as better recycling of electronics. While the WEEE section came into force first on May 1st, 2012, the RoHS obligations started to apply on May 12th, 2013.
If you manufacture or import electronic products in the Republic of India, then WEEE or RoHS obligations may apply, depending on the size of the Indian legal entity and the type of imported devices.
