About the Sanitation Mission:

“Sanitation is more important than independence”- Mahatma Gandhi

Only 40% of urban India is connected to sewer networks and about 1,200 operational/under construction Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs). However, a robust and sustainable sanitation system is an essential prerequisite of effective functioning of urban areas of India. According to the World Bank, India faces economic losses of $53.8 billion, approximately 6.4% of the country’s GDP, due to inadequate sanitation.

eGov is trying to address this challenge through tech-enabled solutions. The Sanitation Mission Leader role has the strategic mandate to drive the rollout and adoption of Digital Infrastructure for Sustainable and Healthy Habitats (DISHHA), our technology platform for improving sanitation, across India. Through active engagement with States and Central government senior bureaucrats, the mission leader will highlight the value of DISHHA in solving feacal sludge management use cases. The role also requires leveraging the power of market players in the sanitation ecosystem to implement, extend and support DISHHA’s deployment in various States.

The sanitation mission at eGov is creating a national sanitation platform. The aim of the platform is to solve the urgent problem of untreated waste in India. The mission also catalyzes an ecosystem of market actors, policy makers, governments and civil society organizations to design programs that will ensure zero untreated waste in 1000 habitats across India in 1000 days.
