First Model Community Bio-digester Sanitary Complex of the state has been installed at Nathnagar Block, Bhagalpur, Bihar

Nearly 50 percent of India’s population defecates in the open, with the situation particularly acute in impoverished rural areas. The effects of open defecation are serious; affecting environment, agriculture produce, human health, economic and social development. Moreover, this is also a concern for the security of women as it is the time when a woman in most vulnerable and exposed.
