An estimate by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural gas suggests that the annual per capita consumption in India would be 20 kgs by 2022. As per CPCB reports, plastic contributes to 8% of the total solid waste, with Delhi producing the maximum quantity followed by Kolkata and Ahmedabad. Only 60% of the total plastic waste is being recycled. Households generate maximum plastic waste, of which water and soft drink bottles form a large number. In India, around 43% of manufactured plastics are used for packaging purpose and most are of single-use. Multi-Layered Plastics are categorized under either recyclable, energy recoverable or with some other alternate use, but their recycling is an expensive process.
