Declaration of Babra Gram Panchyat “Open Defecation Free”
A proposal was passed by Sarpanch, PRI members, villagers and other natural leaders of panchayat in Gram Sabha meeting headed by Sarpanch and Gram sewak on 25.02.2016 for declaring Babra as “Open Defecation Free”.
Subsequent to this proposal a team from Raipur block level and Zila Parishad came for authentication of Open defecation free status and further declaring Babra as “Open Defecation Free” panchayat.
During their visit to household, schools and other community facilities in village following things were cross checked by them to verify the claim of ODF: -
- Presence of total households in community.
- Confirmed the total number of latrines in the community and how many households use them. Latrines are well maintained or not and Hand washing facilities are available in or near the latrines.
- Checked the closeness of latrines to the drinking ground water sources- e.g borehole and dug well (Note: the acceptable distance between drinking water source and latrine is 30 meters/100ft)
- Visited all former open defecation sites, bushes close to homesteads and general environment for faeces
- Visited the schools, health centers for confirming availability of separate toilets, hand washing facilities and urinal
After having all checked and confirmed successfully they declared Babra “Open Defecation Free” and an official certificate from Zila Parishad – Pali will be very soon awarded to panchayat.
Subsequent to this declaration of ODF reward amount of Rs. 2400000/- (Rupees Twenty Four Lakhs only) will be also given to panchayat to undertake various cleanliness activities and uphold the status of ODF.
