Basic sanitation coverage in the sub-metropolitan city is only 96%. The families without own toilet defecate in open places or use neighbour’s toilet. Although there is lack of sewerage network and a Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in the city, 2.0% of the population have connection of their toilet to open drain and water bodies near their houses without any treatment which indicates unsafe sanitation practice. 52% of containments have been emptied at least once since the installation.
