Over the last one year, we have defined the process, identified suitable disposal mechanisms, created service points across the country, identified technically competent disposal agencies and setup a process for disposal of e-waste."

These services can be availed by our customers free of cost by paying nominal freight charges. We are pioneers in launching this service in India, and this displays our commitment to the environment."
