Hailakandi Becomes ODF

Hailakandi  under Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen), has become open defecation free (ODF).A total number of 84,614 individual household latrines (IHHLs) were constructed under the Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen), on the basis of a baseline survey that was carried out in 2012.

The district has 62 gaon panchayats and 331 villages covered under five development blocks Hailakandi, Lala, Katlicherra, Algapur and South Hailakandi.

The deputy commissioner Sri Adil Khan  congratulated the officials and employees of the public health engineering department (PHED) for their efforts in making the district ODF and added “Having reached the feat, the district administration intends to focus more on the towns under the Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) scheme. More than construction of toilets, we want to bring about behavioral change in the people, better sanitation and hygiene measures among residents,”
