Transcript and Presenter's Notes


Project Development Objective
  • The PDO is to improve piped water supply and
    sanitation services for selected rural
    communities in the target states through
    decentralized delivery systems and to increase
    the capacity of the participating States to
    respond promptly and effectively to an Eligible
    Crisis or Emergency.
  • Key PDO level results indicators are the
  • Number of people with increased access to piped
  • Number of people with access to improved
    sanitation facilities.
  • Number of people using improved latrines.
  • Improvements in OM cost recovery.

Project Beneficiaries
  • Direct benefit about 7.8 million rural people
    with improved water supply and sanitation
  • About 48 of the overall project beneficiaries
    expected to be women
  • Participating States to benefit through improved
    institutional capacity, processes and procedures,
    for decentralized RWSS service delivery
    responsibilities and improving accountability to
    rural households
  • Targeted assistance to the tribal populations of
    4 districts in Jharkhand, with about 0.4 million
    expected beneficiaries from tribal populations.

RWSS Program and Policy
  • Ring-fenced Program for Participating Low Income
  • Decentralized Service Delivery Systems
  • District-wide Approach
  • Integrated Approach to Water Supply and
  • Scheme Cycle for Implementing Decentralized
  • Community Contributions towards Capital and OM
  • Governance and Accountability Aspects
  • Public Private Partnerships (PPPs)
  • Twinning with Bank assisted RWSS Projects

Integrated Approach to Water Supply and
  • Water Supply
  • SVSs and MVSs will provide piped water supplies,
    along with catchment area management programs, as
    required, for improving source sustainability.
  • MVSs will be taken up only if local sustainable
    source is not available.
  • A dedicated feeder line for power supply will be
    provided for large MVSs. Solar powered pumps
    will be piloted in remote villages which have
    less than 3-4 hours of power supply.
  • Sanitation
  • Household sanitation (household toilets)
  • Institutional sanitation (schools, anganwadi,
    community/public toilets)
  • Environmental sanitation (SLWM, including
    soak-pits, drains and lane improvements for
    disposal of sullage and wastewater, and solid
    waste management for village-wide cleanliness)
  • IEC / BCC activities for demand creation and
    linkages with nutrition, health and hygiene
  • Interventions will support GoIs NBA program, by
    strengthening its implementation processes at the
    district and village levels

Community Contributions towards Capital and OM
  • Capital Cost (CAPEX) Contributions
  • Rs 450 per household as one-time contribution
    from the beneficiary household (Rs 225 for SC/ST
  • OM Cost Recovery
  • Phased approach for achieving full OM cost
    recovery through user charges
  • In high cost schemes where 100 OM cost recovery
    is not possible, the project will start with at
    least 50 OM cost recovery, gradually moving to
    100 OM cost recovery by end of project period,
    through both real increases and indexation of
    tariffs to a suitable inflation index.
  • 24x7 water supply services in peri-urban areas
    will include household metering and suitably
    structured volumetric tariffs.
  • Bulk Water Tariffs will be introduced for bulk
    water supply at the village entry point for MVSs.
  • In cases affordable charges are inadequate for
    covering OM costs, State Government will provide
    transparent subsidies through OM grants under
    various programs.

Institutional and Implementation Arrangements
  • Project to support progressive decentralization,
    with a much higher role and responsibility to
    PRIs at district and village level for designing
    and implementing the schemes, and to the SWSM and
    DWSM for policy and oversight aspects.
  • Responsibility of planning, implementing, and
    maintaining small SVS will be fully devolved to
    the GP, assisted by the District Project
    Management Units (DPMUs) and Support
    Organizations (SOs).
  • Rural communities to participate in the scheme
    cycle through the GP committees (GP-WSC for SVS
    and MVS committees for MVSs).
  • Contractual arrangements to be made between the
    bulk-water provider, the PHED/JN, and the scheme
    level committees for small and large MVSs.
  • Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), including
    Design-Build-Operate (DBO) models will be piloted
    for large MVSs.

State, District and Village Level Institutional
and Implementation Arrangements

  • Focus on technical, institutional and financial
    sustainability of schemes, with independent
    checks at various stages of the scheme design and
  • Other critical factors are
  • timely implementation of the envisaged
    institutional framework with new and strengthened
    roles and responsibilities of the sector players
  • capacity building of the PRIs and GP-WSSCs to
    take over the responsibilities of WSS service
  • appropriate change management efforts to shift
    the mindset of the sector institutions from
    service provider to facilitator
  • proper monitoring to ensure implementation of a
    consistent policy for all new investments
  • coordination with various departments to ensure
    integrated approach to WSS service delivery.
