Thoothukudi is a frontrunner in sanitation
As many as 436 community sanitary complexes (CSCs) had been constructed in Thoothukudi district of Tamil Nadu during 2001-2004 of which 403 are integrated women’s sanitary complexes (IWSC) and 33 are integrated men’s sanitary complexes (IMSC). During the Swachh Sundar Samudayik Shauchalaya (SSSS) competition that began in November 2019, all these CSCs were renovated.
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.
