Functioning of PZP


Total Sanitation Campaign has been started in the year 2003 in Purulia , a land of rocky terrain with high porosity of subsoil , with a target of 4,21,180 families for household sanitary latrine , 7542 units for school toilets, 2512 units for ICDS centers and 50 toilet complex . Initially Purulia Zilla Parishad launched the programme with functioning of 20 Rural Sanitary Marts at Block level. All infrastructural supports like construction of production centre, training of masons and placement of revolving fund were provided to all RSMs. Despite this ,the district could not register any significant progress ,as may be reflected below , in terms of rate of coverage and failed to bring this programme into a campaign mode. The major pulling factors towards the under achievement are the lack of awareness in the rural areas and financial hardship of rural people and dearth of sufficient water through out the year within the reach of hamlet.
