India generates thousands of tonnes of plastic waste every single day. This is not a problem considering the population of the country but problems arise when only sixty per cent of this waste gets collected. The remaining forty per cent does not even gets into the sight of the government and thus becomes a severe threat to the environment and health of the citizens. To deal with this problem the concept of EPR Compliance for different types of waste was introduced. These EPR Compliances under waste management rules make it mandatory for producers, manufacturers and importers to fulfil their EPR Liabilities by recycling the waste generated by them every year.

What is EPR Compliance in India?
EPR Policy is based on the ‘Polluter Pays’ principle. When a producer's product is no longer in need or use, it becomes the responsibility of the producer to dispose of it on his expenditure and keep the environment safe. The Government of India adopted this principle and accordingly drafted rules regarding EPR. EPR stands for “Extended Producer Responsibility”. Through EPR, the government extends the duties of businesses operating in the country beyond just manufacturing and distributing their products to keep a record of waste in circulation and dispose of or recycle them at the end of product life. It is an exercise and a policy method in which Producers take accountability for the proper disposal of the waste generated from their product. This way they fulfil their obligation to keep the environment clean and safe.
