In India, urban expansion is happening at good rate but urban services have not expanded fast enough to cope with it.

If households below poverty line get employment assurance of 100 days a year, then it would be a happiest situation for all of them. If we assume that all the persons would not offer themselves for casual manual work, let us say only 30 million persons would come for such works. As the average money lost under the employment assurance scheme is Rs. 45, the total requirement would be about Rs. 13500 crore per year. As this is dependent on monsoon, the requirement will also build up gradually. Wage employment programmes are, however, far less than required for such an employment scenario.

Passage

Nearly 100 million people in India lack access to safe drinking water and over 700 mn continue to defecate in the open. Over 600000 children under 5 years lose their lives to water and sanitation related diseases like diarrhoea and pneumonia every year. In this context, the recent launch of the swacch bharat abhiyan(the clean India campaign) by our PM Modi can be seen as a welcome and much needed step. However, if the campaign is to go beyond symbolism and actually achieve the goal of making India open-defecationfree by 2019, it needs a multi-pronged strategy. The swacch bharat concept is launched to pave access for every person to sanitation facilities. We have to achieve this by 2019 as a befitting tribute to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary.
