An Approach to Redefine Rural Livelihood Mission March 2015 To Achieve ODF Nadia


The ‘Sabar Shochagar’ project under Nadia district has started in the month of July 2013. The district authority sets up a deadline to announce this district as an Open Defecation Free (ODF) District within March 15, 2015. To make this process more rational and systematic it has been decided that the ODF declaration should be started from catchment area (Anganwadi Centers/ ICDS center) followed by GPs and Blocks. The mandatory guidelines for ODF declaration has been set up. The whole process will be documented and validated by UNICEF.

Guidelines for ODF declaration at Catchment area:

  • Identification and notification of the area by AWW.A separate guidelines for the catchment area has been framed. The details of the guideline are as follows
  • Before the declaration the ICDS worker (AWW) will verify the household of already entitled latrines as per the list from base line survey and the out of the base line survey
  • The AWW with the help of respective supervisor and CDPO will declare the designated catchment area as an ODF area
  • The AWW will set up a declaration date after coordinating with the CDPO and BDO and she will share the date of declaration through CDPO to inform District Authority and Rural Development Officer (in charge of ODF declaration) and representative from UNICEF
