The concept of smart cities in India provides a window of opportunities to inculcate IOT applications for boosting governance. IOT based waste management system is one such concept which have great future prospects. In this paper, a framework for smart waste management system using IOT applications in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India has been proposed. With the advancing digitalisation and magnifying ICT (Information and Communication Technology) infrastructure in India, there arise many possibilities for implementation of IOT based smart waste management system. The state of Himachal Pradesh is a major tourist destination of Western Himalaya, India and there is approximately 304 metric tonnes of waste generation daily. This quantity of waste rises seasonally when lakhs of domestic and international tourists are added to this population every year. An internet based, well coordinated waste management will be a supplement to the beauty and better environment health of this state.
