The mass production of construction and demolition waste and it\\\'s deposition are creating serious problems in India. In most of the countries, applicability of construction and demolished wastes are restricted to non-structural concrete, pavements and backfilling. The recycling and reapplicability of construction and demolition (C&D) waste as an alternative to aggregates for the production of fresh concrete has attracted attention from the construction sector. Environmental benefits of using recycled aggregates are well accepted but it\\\'s wide application in major structural components is still restricted. This paper discusses rules for management and use of construction and demolition wastes. Innovative steps to reduce, recycle and reuse of wastes are also proposed in this paper. Construction and Demolition waste management is designed to promote development for sustainability, protection of environment and optimum use of natural resources. Promotional and confidence building measures are discussed in detail. Rules for effective utilization of construction and demolition waste by various government bodies are highlighted in this paper. Rules and suggestions for construction and demolition waste are also presented in research paper.
