Abstract

In recent years environmental factors result in increasing attention towards the proper disposition of end of life products. Environmental concerns, government regulations, social responsibility and economic factors are some of the driving forces behind the implementation of reverse logistics. Reverse logistics is an important growing trend in automobile sector because of the increase in automobiles at alarming rate in India. As the concept is new for Indian automobile sector, there are barriers in its implementation which need to be addressed for getting effective results.
