NCSK welcomes Delhi govt's mechanised cleaning of sewers

New Delhi, Mar 1 (UNI) The National Commission for Safai Karamcharis (NCSK) has been mandated to monitor the implementation of 'The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013' and thereby on its recommendation, the Delhi government has launched 200 Sewer Cleaning Machines for narrow lanes.
According to the Supreme Court Judgement dated March 27, there will be payment of Rs 10 lakh compensation to the dependent family members of sewer/septic death cases.
The Commission has taken a serious view on the wake of the mandate with regard to sewer deaths in Delhi, while cleaning septic tanks and sewers.
Chairman of NCSK Manhar Valjibhai Zala held a meeting on September 26, 2017 with Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to discuss the frequent sewer deaths and how to overcome the issue.
The Commission had urged the Delhi Government to immediately ban the hazardous cleaning of Sewer/Septic Tanks manually and introduce complete mechanisation of this type of cleaning, so that further mis-happenings could be avoided.
It has also been suggested that the existing Manual Scavengers and Safai Karamcharis only be engaged in this mechanism technology.
This will not only promote their self-employment, but will also enable them to be called as entrepreneurs, a status that will help them economically.
It will ensure their safety and give them dignity.
