Experts find rainwater harvesting only option to ensure water in Tripura schools

Agartala, Jul 16 (UNI) Experts contemplated for massive rooftop rainwater harvesting in the schools to ensure safe toileting of the students in the schools and well-thought Swatch Vidyalaya Abhiyan (SVA), a flagship programme of the Government of India.
The state owned ONGC hosted a hand in workshop here today through leading private advocacy group ARPAN and Auroville Foundation of Tamil Nadu for the head masters and school inspectors of West, Khowai and Sepahijala districts to ensure water in the toilets.
According to a report, ONGC had built toilets in as many as 205 schools of Tripura in past two years under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) with the directives from Ministry of Human Resource Development. But mostly due to non-availability of water and other logistic difficulties more than 60 pc toilets have not been in use.
