Four-fold increase in manual scavengers in new govt survey; sewer, septic tank cleaners, Rly employees unaccounted for 15.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
In 2018, India has recorded 53,236 manual scavengers, which is a four-fold rise from the 13,000-odd such workers counted in 2017, the Indian Express reported. However, the data, the report added, was a gross underestimate as only 121 out of more than 600 districts were surveyed.   Furthermore, it does not involve people cleaning sewers and septic tanks, as well as data from the Railways, which is the largest employer of manual scavengers. “Of the 53,000 identified so far through the national survey, only a total of 6,650 have been confirmed officially by states in keeping with the tendency to under-report the prevalence of this practice,” the report added. Last November, the Centre announced that a survey on manual scavengers would be conducted by the Social Justice and Empowerment Ministry with the idea to counter the severe under-reporting of the number of these labourers. As per the Socio Economic and Caste Census, 2011, there were 182,505 manual scavengers in India. After the Prohibition of ...

Environmental emergency in Bellandur lake, not even 1 ml of clean water available, NGT informed 14.6.2018 DNA: Top News
 Indiscriminate discharge of untreated sewage into Bengaluru's Bellandur lake has resulted in an "environmental emergency", a committee has told the National Green Tribunal, adding that there is not even one millilitre of clean water in the lake. The NGT-mandated committee said the biggest lake of the beautiful city of Bengaluru had become the largest septic tank of the city due to "sheer callousness and indifference" of the authorities. "According to the material collected, the water holding capacity of Bellandur lake has rapidly shrunk due to indiscriminate dumping of construction and demolition waste, municipal solid waste and due to vast spread of hydrophyte and microphytes in the lake water. Hydrophytes are aquatic plants that grow in or near water and provides cover for fish and other aquatic organisms. "The commission during the inspection was shocked to notice a road that has been constructed on the Varthur lake by dumping construction and demolition waste under the garb of laying a pipeline," ...
