Community Toilets – a welcome surprise for visitors of Kachargadh Mela
Tribal communities that visited the Kachargadh Mela held in Salekasa Taluka of Gondia district in Maharashtra between 7th and 11th February this year were pleasantly surprised with the sanitation facilities that the newly built community toilets provided. Equipped with wash basins, bathing facilities and latrines, the toilets became the talk of the town.
Construction of Community Sanitary Complexes (CSCs) as a part of the ongoing Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyan (SSA) is making headway across the country as 17 districts have achieved 100 per cent CSC coverage (at least one geo-tagged CSC in every village).
To provide insights into the various elements of ODF Plus, how it can be measured and the implementation process, the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti organised a webinar for State and District officials from across the country.
