Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government will soon conduct the physical verification of Individual Household Latrines (IHHL) constructed under the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ in Reasi district.

Various committees have been formed by Additional District Development Commissioner (ADDC) Ramesh Chander to conduct the verification, an official spokesman said today.

The ADDC has instructed the committees to inspect at least a quarter of the total IHHL units on a random basis to see whether they were actually constructed and used by people.

Chander also highlighted the relevance of the exercise with respect to the goal of declaring Reasi district as open defecation free (ODF), the spokesman said.

The committee members have been advised to submit their reports by September 10, he added.
