Failure to implement SLWM likely to cost JK govt Rs 650Cr

Early Times Report
srinagar, Oct 16: As J&K Government failed to implement Solid Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) scheme under Swachh Bharat Mission Grameen (SBM-G) during last four years, will Directorate of Rural Sanitation (DRS) be able to tap an amount of Rs 650 crores for this work in next financial year?
As reported already four years have passed since SBM was launched throughout the country including J&K , but the focus of J&K Government has been on construction of lavatories with the result another component of solid liquid waste management (SLWM) suffered a big jolt and state was not able to get a grant of more than 650 crores meant for rural waste management.
Under Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), construction of Individual House Hold Lavatories (IHHL) one of the components of this scheme. Govt provides financial assistance of Rs 12,000 to the families who don't have a sanitary lavatory. In J&K many families who already have a lavatory, submit the photos of the same before the BDO office in connivance with officials from the same office and get the money under IHHL. This was already reported by Early Times in several of its reports published during last 1 year.
Solid Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) is an essential component under SBM Grameen which is yet to be implemented in J&K inspite of a lapse of 4 years. Sources have told Early Times that an energetic KAS officer namely Indu Kanwal has taken over as Director Rural Sanitation J&K recently and she is planning to revamp this dead organization which failed to undertake the task of rural waste management. The Directorate of Rural Sanitation has already invited Expression of Interest (EoI) for empanelling of technical organizations for its rural waste management programme including the newly launched Gobar Dhan scheme.
Each Gram Panchayat under SBM Grameen's Solid Liquid Waste Management (SLW) gets Rs 7 to 21 lakhs as one time grant from the Central Government through Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation. The grant allocation depends on the population of village. A village with a population of 150 households gets Rs 7 lakhs. For a village with 500 households or more an amount of Rs 21 lakhs is provided in the ratio of 90:10 . 90% of the grant money is central share and 10 % state share. The funds have to be utilized to create solid & liquid waste management facilities. Small villages could create a single cluster by pooling all the money at one place. To tap this money , state Government had to prepare Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) by involving technical organizations / consultants as envisaged in SBM Gramin guidelines.
"Government neither hired these agencies at district level nor was any DPR prepared during last 4 years. Now under the direction of Secretary Rural Development and Director Rural Sanitation empanelling of technical agencies has taken place and by end of October the work on SLWM will be taken up along with implementation of Gobar Dhan scheme in J&K " said a senior officer of Rural Development Department
