Abstract


Abstract

The electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) industry is the world’s largest and fastest growing manufacturing industry providing a role of a forceful leverage to the socio - economic and technological growth of a developing and developed society. These wastes have a major impact over the health of society. Tragedy at the Maya Puri Market (New Delhi, India) is one of the latest examples of this where approximately ten persons have died. After the interrogation it was found that this has occurred due to care less handling of e-waste. There are numerous examples like this. In this paper we analyze the responsibility and accountability of the society or manufacturer or seller or any other people responsible for generation of e-waste. The limitation of this paper is that due to non availability of sufficient data, we may only discuss the accountability and responsibility followed by suggestion of strategies based upon our experience.
