Operation and maintenance manual for rural water supplies

In March 2011, the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation as part of its mandate to provide technical assistance to states released the Operation and Maintenance Manual to help states to operate, maintain drinking water supply scheme. This updated Operation and Maintenance Manual provides further technical and managerial information on the process and content through which village level water supply schemes are operated and maintained to ensure improved and sustainable service delivery. It takes into account the current aspirations and challenges facing the sector, and builds on the framework already set out in the NRWDP, the 12th Five Year Plan approach and Strategic Plan 2011-2022.
