Early Times Report

Srinagar, Sept 22: It is more than 3 years since the new set of rules on Solid Waste Management (SWM) were passed by Government of India, but till date the Department of Rural Development (RDD) has failed to prepare s state policy and solid waste management strategy for rural areas of J&K, with the result management of solid waste is becoming a new challenge for rural areas of state.
Details available with Early Times reveal that rule 13 of Solid Waste Management Rules (SWM Rules 2016) lays emphasis on preparation of a state policy on solid waste plus evolving a strategy in rural areas. In addition to similar strategy has to be evolved for urban areas as well under rule 11 of SWM Rules 2016.
Rule 13 of SWM Rules calls upon the administrative Secretary-in-charge, Rural Development Department (RDD) in the States and Union territories to Prepare a state policy and solid waste management strategy for the state or the union territory in consultation with stakeholders including representative of waste pickers, self-help group and similar groups or NGOs working in the field of waste management consistent with these rules, national policy on solid waste management and national rural sanitation policy can be prepared.
While preparing state policy and strategy on solid waste management in rural areas , RDD has to lay emphasis on waste reduction, reuse, recycling, recovery and optimum utilization of various components of solid waste to ensure minimization of waste going to the landfill and minimize impact of solid waste on human health and environment;
The rules say that State policies and strategies should acknowledge the primary role played by the informal sector of waste pickers, waste collectors and recycling industry in reducing waste and provide broad guidelines regarding integration of waste picker or informal waste collectors in the waste management system.
To ensure that master plan of every gram panchayat in the State or Union territory provisions for setting up of solid waste processing and disposal facilities except for the villages who are members of common waste processing facility or sanitary landfill for a group of villages and to ensure identification and allocation of suitable land to the village panchayat within one year for setting up of processing and disposal facilities for solid wastes and incorporate them in the master plans (land use plan) of the State or as the case may be.
Direct the Rural Dev Department (BDOs , DPO) of the State and local bodies to ensure that a separate space for segregation, storage, decentralized processing of solid waste is demarcated in the development plan for group housing or commercial, institutional or any other non-residential complex facilitate establishment of common sanitary land fill for a group of villages.
Arrange for capacity building of panchayat institutions in managing solid waste, segregation and transportation or processing of such waste at source.
Sources have told Early Times that Rural Development Department (RDD) is yet frame its state policy on waste management. As reported already High Court has also taken a strong note of non implementation of SBM Grameen wherein RDD was to undertake waste management in rural areas of state. RDD has even failed to hire consultants who would frame a state / district level policy for management of solid waste in rural areas.
