It should cover dry latr±nes, manual scavengers and alternat±ve opt±ons for rehab±l±tat±on.As per the ±nformat±on ava±lable w±th the M±n±stry of Hous±ng and Urban Poverty Allev±at±on, there are dry latr±nes ±n Uttar Pradesh, B±har, Jammu & Kashm±r and Assam. Therefore, these four states should take all necessary steps for the complete convers±on and demol±t±on of 1.2.10As per MoHUPA .±n/w_new/±lcsRpt/Execut±onsummary.pdf11NHRC webs±te ±c.±n. The Workshop held on August 28, 2008 was attended by representat±ves from 20 States/UTs, 9 NGOs work±ng ±n the field of Manual Scaveng±ng and five Un±on M±n±str±es ±nclud±ng M±n±stry of Soc±al Just±ce and Empowerment and M±n±stry of Urban Development and Poverty Allev±at±on.
15dry latr±nes and rehab±l±tat±on of manual scavengers ±n the±r respect±ve states. Based on comprehens±ve survey all other states should also take necessary measures.Jammu & Kashm±r and Delh± should qu±cken the pace of adopt±on of the Act wh±ch should be done at the earl±est.The defin±t±on of manual scavengers ±s d±fferent from san±tary workers and all author±t±es may restr±ct to the defin±t±on of manual scaveng±ng as g±ven ±n the Employment of Manual Scaveng±ng and Construct±on of Dry Latr±nes (Proh±b±t±on) Act, 1993.The presence of too many agenc±es ±s often delay±ng the el±m±nat±on of the pract±ce of manual scaveng±ng and rehab±l±tat±on work. Therefore, d±str±ct mag±strates should be made the nodal agency and jo±nt ±nstruct±ons from the three central m±n±str±es concerned w±th manual scaveng±ng should be ±ssued to the states/un±on terr±tor±es and the d±str±ct mag±strates to take necessary steps for coord±nat±on and convergence of efforts. At state level, there should be a coord±nat±ng body to mon±tor fram±ng of appropr±ate rules and regulat±ons, survey as env±saged ±n recommendat±on 1, convers±on or demol±t±on of dry latr±nes, rehab±l±tat±on of manual scavengers, prosecut±on of defaulters, etc.The ±ssue of lack of space and scarc±ty of water ±n some pockets ±n some states has to be addressed by adopt±ng appropr±ate technology and methodolog±es.The mun±c±pal and panchayat byelaws of the states should have prov±s±ons not to allow the construct±on of any new house w±th dry latr±ne or w±thout a water seal latr±ne or san±tary latr±nes w±th appropr±ate technology and measures should be bu±lt so that dry latr±nes made ±n the past 184.108.40.206.7.can be demol±shed and new water seal latr±nes w±th appropr±ate technology be constructed. There should be a t±me bound l±m±t for convers±on of dry latr±nes ±nto wet latr±nes and construct±on of new latr±nes.
