As per the E-waste Management Rules 2016, E-waste Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in India is primarily focused on the manufacturers, producers, or importers of electronic products. As for bulk consumers, E-Waste authorization is not applicable if they import Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) for self use.
