Abstract India is experiencing rapidly increasing rates of consumption of electrical and electronic products. This, accompanied with high obsolescence rates, has led to higher rates of E waste generation. E-waste handling is a problem of increasing proportion, especially when crude methods are adopted for recovery of useful components from it. In India the current estimate projects 2.7 million tons of E-waste generation annually-waste has become both an immediate and long term problem. The rapid growth of technology usage, up-gradation of technical innovations and a high rate of obsolescence in the electronics industry have led to one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world – end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment products. In this paper, E-waste generation and model E- waste management can be discussed in details manner.
