Review of MSWM Practices in Jaipur City in Light of SWM 2016 Rules
Industrial revolution in various parts of the world has changed the pattern of urbanization which eventually changed the life style and consumption patterns not only in urban centers but in rural areas of developed and even in developing countries. This altered consumption and life style has increased per capita waste generation. To deal with this burgeoning amount of waste, most developed and developing countries has notified certain rules for all kind of solid waste management (SWM) in municipal and rural areas. Recently, Government of India has notified waste management rules in 2016. Jaipur, highly populated and most urbanized city of Rajasthan state in India, is one among the large solid waste generating urban centers. The present article is an attempt to access comparative status of municipal solid waste management (MSWM) in Jaipur in light of the newly notified SWM rules after the completion of 2 years of notification. This paper is exploring the present status of solid waste generation rate, its collection efficiency & transportation, processing of the generated waste and final disposal of inert waste at the landfill site. The comparison of present status with notified rules revealed that ongoing waste management practices in Jaipur are highly dissatisfying and not at par of the standards of MSWM rules 2016.
