Purification of Rural Sewage Water


Sewerage system does not exist in rural areas of the country.  Under Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen), for disposal of human excreta, use of safe and eco-friendly onsite sanitation technologies such as twin leach pit toilets is encouraged for most parts of the country.  Under this technology, human faeces automatically become manure in 1-2 years.  In case of septic tank and single leach pit toilets, it is advised to retrofit them by converting the single pits to twin pits and connecting septic tank with soak pits.  For treatment of faecal sludge from the septic tanks and single pit toilets, SBM (G) guideline provide for mechanical emptying of the pits and transportation of faecal sludge to nearby Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) / Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant (FSTP) in urban/rural area.  Funding provision at the rate of Rs.230 per capita is available under SBM (G) for setting up of FSTP in rural areas.

Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) revamped the placement linked skill development program under National Rural Livelihood Mission as Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) on the 25th of September, 2014.

A total of 11.15 lakh candidates have been trained and 7.13 lakh candidates trained since inception under the DDU-GKY programme.


  


Lakhs of job seekers, both trained under the DDU-GKY programme and otherwise, participated in the job fairs. Close to 285 such fairs were organised across the country with participation from about 278 plus organisations. Some of the participating companies include Amazon India, Swiggy, Med Plus, Axis Bank, Kia Motors, Innovsource, Flipkart, Nana Bharat Fertilizers, Reliance Trends, Westside, Spencers, Leela Hotel, JW Mariott, Bengaluru, Teamlease Services etc. to name a few.
