The Govt. of Tamil Nadu (GoTN), recently adopted two unique governance mechanisms viz., Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and Standard License agreement to operationalise the delivery of Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) services within clusters of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) across the state. The MoU establishes a formal process for the use of shared treatment facilities between ULBs and ensures their financial sustainability. The Standard License Agreement enables simpler registration of desludging operators with ULBs and regulates desludging services.
