Who implement Drinking well and drinking well maintenance

Now their is a big debate in GPs for the implementation of Drinking well,well maintenance,
water connection.But it is clear that the implementing officer of all such projects are the AE in LSGD.

In 2003 govt gave special direction to except VEOs from implementing work projects other than Housing and Latrine.But most the VEOs continueing to implement all the projects due to the convener position in Drinking water and sanitation working group.


  • But now the working group convener position goes to the AE LSGD.
  • Another reason is that  the drinking water related projects are approved by Assistant Executive Engineer not by BDOs.
