Rejecting import obligation on metal waste, giving industry status, to get rid of pre-shipment review Certificate (PSIC) and having an approach on reused metal is the thing that Metal Recycling Association of India (MRAI) anticipates from the administration, either amid this Budget or in the following couple of years.

A between pastoral team characterizing a time span to execute the proposals of the report is presently required. I am cheerful that in two or three years, there will be a considerable measure of positive transform from the administration for the benefit of this segment,” included Mehta.
Union government is additionally wanting to scrap and reuse vehicles more than 15 years of age, in lieu of it the proprietors will remain to pick up 5% of the vehicle cost.
