Times of India reported that India’s Union minister for steel Chaudhary Birender Singh called for a separate classification for the recycling sector in order to nurture and encourage industries that recycle plastic and metal. He told "If we establish this industry, recycling industry should be considered as a separate industry. When we talk of industry, we talk of MSME, handicraft, big industries, integrated steel plants and secondary steel. Recycling industry should be given a new distinct name and it should be separate from the general industry as such."

Explaining what he meant by recycling industry, Singh said that all forms of recycling should be classified into this distinct sector.

He added "The objective is to strengthen recycling industry, to make it more prominent in our scheme of things and to also ensure that this becomes a part and parcel of our national GDP. It requires lot of protection also.”

Going further, Singh said that granting special status to the recycling sector would help create extra employment in the country.
