Nita T. Bagde, Gigi D. Thomas


Abstract: This study attempts to evaluate overall hygiene and sanitation status in non-Nirmal Gram villages of Gondia District. Total 400 respondents (villagers) were selected from 8 non-Nirmal Gram villages (50 respondents from each village) in Gondia District. Data was collected by using self-prepared well-structured interview schedule. The collected data is analysed by using descriptive statistics such as frequency, percentage and non-parametric chi-square test. Study concluded that found that there are various problems related to sanitation and hygiene in non-Nirmal Gram villages of Gondia district. These problems include lack of availability of public toilets, treated water supply, drainage system, waste management facility as well as disease management facility. The no. of public toilets available in the villages are not adequate. Most villagers did not use public toilets. The primary reasons behind not using public toilet is toilets are not in usable condition and there is lack of water in the toilet. Study suggested that Grampanchayat as well as related public bodies should take appropriate steps to fulfill the sanitation and hygiene needs of villages and should encourage villages to become Nirmal Gram.
