KMC Machines To Replace Manual Cleaning Of Drains


Kolkata: In a move sure to bring cheer to both workers and activists, Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has decided to pumps and other machinery in order to do away with the manual cleaning of drains.

Trinamool Congress has always been vociferous about abolishing manual scavenging, and this move would add to that effort.

Several of the machines required for cleaning the underground sewage pipelines have already been bought. According to the mayor, the KMC wants to start the cleaning process well before monsoon.
