The treatment and disposal of medical and hazardous waste may pose health risk directly or indirectly through the release of many toxic pollutants into the atmosphere. The main concern is to have safe and secure management of the environment and health. One-fourth of the total wastes generated from the healthcare activities are hazardous. The main cause for the increase in infectious diseases is the improper waste management system in our country and also the risk associated is not only to the persons handling it but also the general public, that’s why we need global cooperation and systems to treat and improve the healthcare sector. Biomedical waste and related hazardous waste are those, which are generated through any treatment, research or any other diagnostic activity and pose a potential threat to the environment and the public health. Our research will focus on biomedical waste and its challenges in relation to the case of Mc Mehta v. UOI 2020. Through this research we are working on identifying the issues and ways which will help us to mitigate the problem related to improper disposal of medical waste. We hope to discover trends that point out why there is a need to change and upgrade the existing system. The data which we will gather will stand as a base for the research. During the COVID period, there is an increase in the demand of medical facilities and equipment which may overburden the waste system, and for that we shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if we want to change the future scenario of bio medical waste in our country.
