Government of India has drafted rules and regulations related to biomedical waste management since 1998 and its recent amendments has undergone on 2016. The present article is an orientation of the recent rule (Biomedical Waste Management Rules, 2016) and awareness and practices of biomedical waste management as per Indian scenario. Evidence on the knowledge and practice regarding biomedical waste management suggests a lacuna in proper segregation of biomedical waste in Indian setting. The classification of biomedical waste as per the colour coding system in the recent rule (Biomedical waste management, 2016) may help in reducing the mixing of biomedical waste in various health care system.
