Niti Ayog has initiated a pilot project “Sewapuri Vikas Abhiyan (SeVA)” in Sewapuri Block (covering all 87 GPs – 21 clusters) of Varanasi through convergence of welfare schemes and programmes in order to improve outcomes. Sewapuri Vikas Abhiyan (SeVA) emphasizes on achieving development goals through saturation of identified central and state government schemes. It facilitates Gram Panchayats to achieve qualitative improvement in lives of people.
At the district level the pilot is being led by the District Magistrate and being monitored as per specific KPIs. The theme of Sanitation under SBM 2.0 has 6 KPIs mainly related to WASH infrastructure development and improvement including construction of IHHL & Community Toilets, establishment of SLWM system (Rickshaw cart for garbage collection in villages and waste stabilization pond construction) at GP level.
Hence, there is an apparent need to inform, mobilize and support the community on key behavioral aspects of Sanitation such as individual regular toilets usage, hand washing, appropriate disposal of solid and liquid wastes, menstrual hygiene management etc. so as to enable better program implementation and sustainability of outcomes.
