Quoting 2011 census data Mr Alom said 60 per cent of village households still do not have access to proper toilet facilities in the country and in India more people have a mobile phone than a household toilet.

Speaking to the participants Mrs. D Choudhury UNICEF Assam consultant informed SSHE programme has been started only in 8 districts of Assam. i.e Nagaon , Dibrugarh, Jorhat, Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, , Morigaon, Nalbari and Barpeta in the 1st quarter. For the smooth implementation of the SSHE programme it is important to train the district level functionaries on SSHE matters for better implementation of the programme so a DRG is constituted in the district added Mr H Goswami, programme officer, SSA, Nagaon.
