On March 28, 2016, the Government of India published the Biomedical Waste Management Rules, 2016 in superstation of the Biomedical Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 1998. In the new Biomedical Waste Management Rules, 2016, several changes and additions have been made to further improve the collection, segregation, processing, treatment and disposal of the biomedical wastes in an environmentally sound manner.
