Why is urban waste disposal a serious problem in India?

Urban waste disposal is a serious problem in India due to the following reasons:

  • Concentration of industrial units in and around urban centres gives rise to disposal of industrial wastes
  • The dumping of wastes, industrial or otherwise, will render water bodies around urban areas usable.
  • Lack of suitable dumping grounds due to high population density
  • Inefficient waste management policies on the part of the municipal authorities concerned.
