Chaos in Total Sanitation Campaign:

There were several deficiencies/irregularities like payment of incentive without construction of toilets, incentive beyond the permissible amounts, double payment, non-construction of toilets, poor quality in construction/maintenance and lack of sustainability and inflated/unsubstantiated reporting of achievement. The cumulative achievement of 6,15,471 IHHLs shown by the State was much higher than the Census 2011 figure of 4,95,053 including 3,96,978 pit latrines in the rural households of the state. Selection of beneficiaries was not transparent as no basis/criteria were followed with the possibility of bias in such selection. P/4(2013-14)

Drinking Water Program without importance

Planning for Rural Drinking Water Supply Schemes were deficient as neither bottom-up approach nor community involvement was ensured in the planning process as envisaged in the NRDWP guidelines. Sustainability aspect of water supply was not accorded due importance. Out of planned 1533 sustainability schemes worth Rs 15.81 crore for 2146 habitations, just 35 were completed at the cost of Rs 0.81 crore. In the absence of adequate bacteriological and chemical tests on water supplied through the scheme, the water could not be certified as being free from harmful chemical and bacteriological contaminants. (Total funds allocated for water supply schemes in the state during 2009-14 was to the tune of Rs 665.15 crore) P/33(2013-14)

Misutilization of central fund

Additional Central Assistance funds of Rs 9.34 crore provided by the Govt. of India for a road project was mis-utilised by way of spending 6.83 crore towards other unrelated works and depositing 2.51 crore with the EE, Store Division in the name of procurement of steel which remained blocked over two years.
