Post project sustainability is expected to be achieved through the following: 

  • Continuing leadership and guidance of the MP
  • Strong ownership and leadership of the Gram Panchayat and the village community with role clarity on operation and maintenance of the assets created under the programme. 
  • Involvement of the private sector in operation and maintenance of bigger assets like sewerage and large water supply schemes. 
  • Involvement of SHGs in the operation and maintenance of smaller community assets like vermicompost systems, small water supply schemes, nutrition centres, citizen service centres, libraries etc. 
  • Clear protocols in respect of departmental responsibilities in operation and maintenance to be laid down and agreed upon, upfront at the time of approval of projects under the Plan.
