Manual scavengers are largely illiterate and have no exposure or aptitude for doing business or taking up self employment ventures.  This makes their rehabilitation in alternative occupations very challenging.

\

INDIAN RAILWAYS under our own honourable govt is the largest employer of manual scavengers. It is a matter of shame for our govt.
Our govt instead of concentrating on implementing bullet trains they should first focus on safety, security and cleanliness. Part of this the govt should take drastic steps to eliminate manual scavengers who may be utilized in unmanned railway crossing so that they become manned crossing.

In one of his Mann Ki Baat episodes Mr Modi had talked about the synergy between skill development and gainful employment. Ground reality is that lots of Indians are have no means of earning their living whereas lots of people who can afford to give employment to housekeepers, drivers, electricians, plumbers, tailors, cooks, etc. (part time as well as full time); do not get long lasting employees of their choice. One can engage these people in such skill and personality devp. Ventures.

I still come across people (Manual Scavengers) at major junctions in Bangalore city waiting for house holds to call them for their services in cleaning the jammed toilets. Even after Supreme Court has banned manual scavenging, state governments / municipal authorities have not swung into action to identify the people working as manual scavengers and work towards their rehabilitation.

First time graduates should be given tax holidays for all the earnings. To start up new business production/service , loans need to be provided. In all the sectors, they should be employed and given opportunity to do business. For example, say in a state 100 private bus operators there,;at least 3% should be given for this category people. PM should do this.

Rehabilitation of Manual Scavengers: some good comments as well as some shocking comments. Central Government should put maximum effort in bringing economic upwardness in this group of people. Tamilnadu Govt done a wonderful job in giving 3% job reservations to this group called SC-A group. Similarly Central also should create jobs, self-employment and reservations in educations, jobs, as well as create more entrepreneurs. First time graduates should be given tax holidays for all the earnings.

Start a urban waste procurement company with an idea collecting recyclable waste materials from house holds. Attract people by saying " gIVE WASTES, TAKE Money", people should be paid in bank account if they give you recyclable waste material in pure form. Also collect biodegradable wastes IN PURE FORM from houses to send them to make manures. Also pay them. This might me just few rupees but people will like to save wastes for you in return for money. Only pure form is acceptable to you,just say

It's shocking if manual scavenging still persists. It's a disgrace for the nation. I saw it 20 years ago in Howrah and shuddered. The employers of manual scavengers should be fined and even jailed.
