Public Health Engineering Department, Nagaland

Particulars of the Organisation,  Functions and Duties

  1. Particulars of Organisation, Functions and Duties

             The Nagaland State Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) is the Nodal Agency for
      implementation of Water Supply and Sanitation schemes, both of the Govt. Of India (GOI) and the State Govt. programmes.
    The “Right to Information Bill, 2004” was passed by both the houses of Parliament in May 2005 and received the assent of the President of India on the 15th June , 2005, following which the “Right to Information Act, 2005” was published in the Gazette of India on the 21st June, 2005.
    The objective of this hand book is to provide basic information on the department, its functions and duties, the powers and duties of its Officers and employees, Rules, Regulations, Instructions, Manuals and records for discharging its functions etc. in order to provide access to information to the citizens, to promote transparency and accountability in administration.
    This Disclosure handbook has been prepared with a view to provide citizens’ access to information, on the activities, of the PHED.
    Objective, purpose of the public authority : The Nagaland State Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) is the Nodal Agency for implementation of Water Supply and Sanitation schemes, both of the Govt. Of India (GOI) and the State Govt. programmes.

    Mission/Vision Statement of the Public Authority : The mission of the department is to ensure safe potable drinking water to the citizens of the state. The vision statement of the PHED is

    “Sustainable safe Drinking Water Supply and
    Environmental Hygiene for ensuring Health
    for all inhabitants of the State”.

    Brief History of the public authority : The department was under the then State PWD, till 1974, as a Water Supply Wing. It was bifurcated from the PWD on 5th May 1974 and was then headed by a Superintending Engineer till 1983. The Head of Department was up graded to that of Additional Chief Engineer in July 1983. A Circle was created at Mokokchung in 1984 and then at Kohima in 1986. The Head of Department was subsequently up graded to that of Chief Engineer in 1990. One more Circle was created at Kohima in 2000, by up gradation of one post of Executive Engineer (Design) of PHE Directorate, Kohima. The PHED is now headed by a Chief Engineer. The other sub ordinate authorities include one Addl. Chief Engineer,  three working circles, each headed by a Superintending Engineer, thirteen working divisions, each headed by an Executive Engineer, one central Store Division and 43 working sub divisions, each headed a Sub Divisional Officer.
                       The PHED has also two enabling support cells, both sponsored by the GOI, namely Water and Sanitation Support Organization (WSSO), headed by one Director (in the rank of Addl. Chief Engineer), supported by one Executive Engineer and two Assistant Engineers. Another support cell is the Monitoring & Investigation Cell (M & I Cell), headed by a Superintending Engineer, supported by two Executive Engineers and two Assistant Engineers.

     

     

    Duties of the public authority: The PHED implements Water Supply as well as Sanitation
    schemes and it is the duty of the department to identity the need for these services. The department therefore identifies the need, prepares project report, pursues for financial sanction, implements, commissions, hands over the scheme to the beneficiary for Operation & maintenance ( O & M) or does the O & m works for satisfactory delivery of the services of drinking water supply and sanitation.

    Main activities/function of the public authority: The main activities of the department, are Survey and  Investigation, Collection of Technical Data, Planning, Design, Preparation of Feasibility and Detailed Project Reports, Implementation of scheme and post commissioning Operation and Maintenance. The PHED implements Rural and Urban Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation schemes under various programs such as National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP), State Plan, SBM, NLCPR DONER etc. The department also implements water quality schemes, such as installation of Iron Removal Plant (IRP) under the Sub Mission Programme of Govt of India. In like manner the department also implements Sanitation projects, such as construction of Individual Household Latrine (IHHL) under the Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC) programme.

    The PHED, has also pursued the the Nagaland Communitization of Public Institutions and Services Act , 2002 and has communitised 1386 Rural Drinking Water Supply Schemes, between 2005-2013. Communitisation is the empowerment to the beneficiary by way of transfer of ownership and responsibility, for O & M of the water supply and sanitation schemes. This communitisation initiative has so far been concentrated to the rural areas.
              
     The PHED also levies water tax from the urban water consumers; but the department is more of a Welfare Service nature and hence the Water Tax Rates are very nominal. The Water tax so collected goes into the State Govt. exchequer, by way of remittances into the treasury. It is therefore seen that the PHED is an Implementing as well as Revenue-Earning department.

    List of services being provided by the public authority with a brief write -up on them:

    The department provides services in drinking water supply and sanitation.
    Drinking water supply service is given to both urban as well as rural habitations. The implementation of water supply schemes is done under various programmes of Central and State govts. The Central programmes are National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP), Sub Mission, Water Quality Monitoring, Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC), SBM(G) and DONER. Drinking Water Supply schemes are implemented under NRWSP and Swajaldhara. The Swajaldhara is a sustainability programme, for sustaining available facilities and installations and it is required that the beneficiary village must contribute 10% of the project cost which can be in kind to the extent of 5% and the remaining in cash. Sub Mission programme is for water quality improvement. In Nagaland this programme is pursued in the foothill areas of Dimapur and is being extended to Wokha, Mokokchung and Mon districts along the Assam Nagaland border; where the water contains high level of iron. Hence Iron Removal Plants (IRP) are installed for iron- removal. Water Quality Monitoring programme is for data collection and monitoring of water quality, so as to identity any content, in water, which is hazardous to health. Whenever required the department for Development of North East Region (DONER) also extends financial support to water supply implementation effort.
                
      Sanitation schemes are implemented under various programmes, mostly under the Central govt. Under GOI sponsorship a Sewerage scheme is ongoing at Dimapur which is for abatement of pollution to rivers Dhansiri and Diphu. This scheme is meant to set up sewer treatment plant so that the two rivers are not polluted with harmful contaminants. Sanitation schemes are also
    pursued under the Total Sanitation Campaign; in which scheme for solid waste extradition and construction of Integrated Household Latrine (IHHL) are implemented. Solid waste extradition is by way of construction of Litter/Dust bins and then extradition of the collected wastes. IHHL is constructed by way of cost sharing in the ratio of 60:28:18 (60% centre: 20% state: 20 % beneficiary).

     

    NAME OF SCHEMES IMPLEMENTED BY THE CENTRAL AND THE STATE GOVERNMENT UNDER PHED NAGALAND

    1. Rural Water Supply.

    Schemes for providing drinking water supply to rural villages/ habitations are taken up under the National Rural Drinking Water Programme (NRDWP), Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation, Government of India, funded jointly by the Central (90%) and State (10%) Governments. It aims to provide safe drinking water to all habitations/ households/ population in rural India, including government schools and Anganwadis, public buildings etc. in rural areas.

    1. Urban Water Supply Schemes

    Urban water supply schemes taken up by the Department are funded by various Central Government Ministries such as Urban Development and DoNER with 90:10 (Central and State) funding pattern.

    1. Urban Sewerage and Sanitation.          

    It aims at disposing off solid and liquid waste through interventions such as (a) collection of liquid wastes by a network of sewers and imparting treatment processes to improve the of water and (b) provision of domestic sewer connections and environment friendly management of solid and liquid wastes. 

    1. Environmental Improvement & Sustainable Conservation of Lakes under National Lake Conservation Plan (NLCP).

    The project is targeted to conserve the lakes which can be sources of drinking water as well as for recreational activities such as angling and boating.

    1. Swachh Bharat  Mission (Gramin).

    This Mission aims at  improving the level of cleanliness in rural areas through Solid and Liquid Waste Management activities and making Gram Panchayats/villages Open Defecation Free (ODF), clean and sanitary.

     

     

    Organisational Structure Diagram at various levels namely State, directorate, region district, block ect (whichever is applicable): The organizational structure of the PHE department is like any other state department, with State level Administration headed by the Secretary, the Directorate level headed by the Chief Engineer, the Circle level, consisting of several divisions, headed by a Superintending Engineer and the District level offices each headed by the Executive Engineer. There is no Block level structure; but the Sub Divisional level set up is headed by a Sub Divisional officer, which may consist of several blocks in the rural sector. The post of Executive Director Human Resource Development (HRD) was created in 2001, now WSSO. As of July 2014 the Nagaland PHED has a total of 1629 Regular employees and 2279 Work Charged employees.


                  The Organisational diagram/organogram is appended  as Annexure C:

Expectation of the public authority from the public for enhancing its effectiveness and efficiency: Whethergovt department or any other organization is for the service or consumption of the masses or public and hence the department/organization invariably requires the co operation and support of the public. In the case of drinking water supply and sanitation the support and co operation of the public are needed in the following ways:
  a).Water consumers need to understand that the water supply system is for the benefit of the people and hence the people need to constantly co operate with the water works personnel in the implementation and maintenance of the water supply and sanitary schemes.
  b). Any land dispute is a hindrance to the implementation of any scheme. To overcome such hindrances the water sources must be freely handed over to the department for implementing water supply schemes.
  c). The right of way for laying pipelines and component installations such as water tanks, meter houses, etc are needed to be given, for speedy implementation of projects and maintenance works.
 d). Any breakages need to be immediately reported to the department personnel and to extend all possible help by the public in rectifying the damage, instead of lodging complaint with an attitude of supply-approach.
e). Whenever and wherever applicable consumers must pay the water fee in time because it is the revenue with which the govt functions.
 f). The people need to understand that polluting the water sources is equal to polluting ourselves and hence water sources need to be protected against any pollution so that potability of drinking water is ensured.
 g). Water sources are the outflow of the trapped rainwater that has infiltrated into the soil. Hence catchments of water sources need to be conserved and deforestation must be checked.
 h). Sanitary practices enhance our health and hence human excreta and other waste materils must properly be disposed off.  Open defecation and throwing waste materials at random need to be checked.
 i). Water consumers need to be aware of the departmental rules such as the Water Consumer Rules 1998 so that they know whether it is the department or the consumer who is responsible, when any controversy arise.
 j). The concept of Public Private Partnership (PPP) is needed to be understood by consumers so that instead of the blame-game teamwork enhances efficiency of all.  
 
Arrangements and methods made for seeking public participation/contribution: Public participation and contribution in the programmes of the PHE already existing, as follows:
  a). the programme of Communitisation of water supply and sanitation calls for handing over of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) works to the Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) committees. Communitisation of rural water supply and sanitation has started since 2005-06. After completion of rural communitisation urban communitisation will be initiated, vide also Manual 2.6, above.  
 c) In the Total sanitation Campaign programme, cost sharing is in the ratio of 60:28:12 (60% centre: 28% state: 12 % beneficiary), vide Manual 2.6, above.
 

 

Mechanism available for monitoring the service delivery and public grievance resolution:
     At the Directorate level there is a Cell of Monitoring & Investigation; which deals with the data base of all departmental activities. Hence any information on the activities of the department can be asked from the cell. Public grievances are normally attended to, at the District level, at the divisional office; public grievances are entertained at all levels; depending on the nature of the grievance. The PHE department is also a revenue earning department and hence consumers are listed by way of registration as a bonafide consumer. Hence the word “public” can be interpreted as a registered consumer and not as the common public as a whole.

Manual-III 

The procedure followed in decision making process including channels of supervision and accountability:

                           The  Administrative Head is the Secretary to the govt , PHE, and the Executive Head of the Department is the Chief Engineer and decision making process is carried out at various levels, as per the delegated powers of the various ranks. The delegated powers, of the Executive officers (engineers) are as per NPWD Code, as well as in compliance of govt Notifications/Memorandums issued from time to time. The NPWD Code is appended as Annexure C.
               The programme and policy decisions are made at the Administrative level, with the help of the Executive officers. Such policy decisions taken are passed down to the Circle and the Division. The Circle and Divisional authorities direct their respective Sub Divisional and sub ordinates to carry out the implementation of the policies. The grass root level, of implementation of plans, is the division where the survey and feasibility studies are carried out at the ground. As per feasibility and requirements of resources, the project Reports (estimates) are prepared and Administrative Sanction and Expenditure Sanctions are obtained, following which Technical Sanctions are accorded by the Executive Head, the Chief Engineer. After the necessary sanctions and approvals the funds and materials are released to the divisions. The funds are usually released in installments and schemes are  implemented in phases, as per resource availability. The Divisional Head, the Executive Engineer, is the DDO and makes all payments and hence maintains records of all financial and material transactions. These records are audited by the Accountant General, Nagaland, at regular intervals. The Divisional Engineer is therefore accountable for all financial and material transactions made through the division. The schemes are implemented under the vigil and supervision of the Circle in charge, the Superintending Engineer, who inspects and gives technical and codal guidance to the implementing engineers. Whenever necessary, especially in the implementation of major projects, the apex executive authorities also periodically inspect and supervise at the work site.
    The Annual Works Programme is printed and circulated down to the Divisional and sub divisional levels and hence access by public is made possible, by circulation of the Annual Works Programme.
           The Sub Divisional Engineer manages the manpower under his charge, supervises works at site, prepares working estimates, places indents for materials and collects such materials for schemes under his charge, maintains Site accounts of materials for each ongoing scheme, prepares bills of work contractors, prepares bills of work charged employees and pays them, etc.
           It is therefore seen that the Divisional and Sub Divisional Officers are directly involved in implementation of works, at the grass root level and hence are directly responsible.
