‘Model’ Gujarat’s 46% rural households don’t have drainage, worse than UP, Bihar: GoI 

“Model” Gujarat’s rural areas continue to suffer from a major lag in the drainage system, if the latest Government of India (GoI) report, “Drinking Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Housing Condition”, a survey carried out between July and December 2018 across the country, is any indication.

The survey report, which was released last week, says that as against the national average of 38.9% rural households having no drainage system, Gujarat’s 45.5% rural households do not have any drainage facility.…

Interestingly, the figure of a whopping 45.5% households lacking drainage system comes against the backdrop of the report claiming that Gujarat’s only 0.5% rural households are such were no water is available in or around the latrines.
