Providing Sanitation Facilities

According to the survey data, improved sanitation facilities are not available for more than 25% of the plantation community. To provide sanitation facilities for the people live in line rooms, the Ministry has approved 537 new latrines in 2016. The construction of these latrines has been entrusted to the Estate Worker Housing Cooperative Societies through Plantation Human Development Trust. The beneficiary contribution is secured through the excavation of toilet pits. Estimated cost per unit is Rs 50,000 and Rs 6.8 million has been incurred for the project by the end of September 2016.
