Abstract: The paper reviews the present status of composting in various cities and towns of India and brings into focus some of the basic shortcomings in the technology that is holding up the progress of an other­wise sound programme. The authors suggest an appropriate technology with optimal degree of mechanisation suited to the refuse character­istics and techno-economic resources of the local government bodies in India, in the light of their experiences in the pilot compost plant in South suburban municipality, Calcutta.
