Although many countries, including those in the European Union, have developed laws to address electronic waste (or e-waste) disposal and management, there is no law that addresses e-waste in India. The current estimation of the amount of E-waste generated in India is extremely hazy. E-waste management in India is a serious issue because of the informal recycling activities. In this paper an attempt has been made to quantify the amount of e-waste generated in Raipur. And results were obtained regarding awareness among people about e-waste, method of e-waste management and suggestions were obtained about e-waste management. Based on the survey conducted, it was recommended that role of government should be increased for controlling the informal method of e-waste management and for promoting the formal method and increasing the awareness among people about hazardous effect of e-waste and for its proper disposal.
