The new deadline for the Financial Year (FY) 2023-24 is now 31st August 2024, marking the Waste Tyre EPR extension 2024.

By facilitating smoother compliance processes, the extension aims to foster greater participation from industry players while bolstering environmental stewardship.

Conclusion

The extended timeline shows a balanced approach to regulatory compliance and operational feasibility. It underscores the government’s commitment to a robust waste management framework while accommodating industry needs for smoother regulatory transitions. Stakeholders should use this Waste Tyre EPR extension 2024 effectively to ensure comprehensive compliance and contribute to sustainable environmental practices.
