Tracking policy and budgetary commitments for drinking water and sanitation: a study of select states
Centre for Budget & Governance Accountability (CBGA) in partnership with Arghyam undertook the study ‘Tracking Policy and Budgetary Commitments for Drinking Water and Sanitation in the New Fiscal Architecture in India’ in an effort to understand the fund flow processes of the different institutions/line agencies that are involved in the implementation of water and sanitation schemes in a better manner and also, the adequacy of budgetary resources for it. The study was carried out during August – December 2015. The Report contains a brief overview of the water and sanitation policy landscape at the Central government level, followed by an analysis of the fund flow mechanisms of water and sanitation-both rural and urban- in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha. Apart from this, a detailed analysis of state budgets for water and sanitation- both rural and urban was undertaken.
