In a distinctive move, a law students’ organisation based in Pune 'Lawyers for Earth Justice’ have filed a petition in National Green Tribunal (NGT) court demanding proper disposal of condoms in the country. Condom is a non-degradable waste, hence disposing it in improper manner invites pollution as also creates scope for several diseases. In a petition filed, the students have demanded that a proper set of rules for condom disposal should be implemented. Condom is included in sanitary waste. Even then it is seen that people dispose of condoms like any other garbage. The dignity of the ragpickers are affected because they have to manually handle the used condom waste. This is socially and environmentally not correct.
