Sikkim nominates Amba GP for SSSS competition
The north eastern State of Sikkim which attained the status of the country’s first open defecation free (ODF) State in March, has nominated Amba Gram Panchayat (GP) for the nationwide Swachh Sundar Samudayik Shauchalaya (SSSS) competition.
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.
