FSSM Policy FSSM Policy

National Policy on Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM)

The key objective of the urban FSSM Policy is to set the context, priorities, and direction for, and to facilitate, nationwide implementation of FSSM services in all ULBs such that safe and sustainable sanitation becomes a reality for all in each and every household, street, town and city. Only on-site sanitation facilities and areas served by such facilities would fall under the purview of this FSSM Policy. It does not seek to cover network or conventional sewerage system (including treatment plants) of wastewater/sewage management. However it will address synergies between FSSM and sewerage systems or municipal solid waste (MSW) management, e.g., co-treatment of faecal sludge and septage at sewage treatment plants or co-treatment and management of faecal sludge and septage, and MSW.
