    follow up report

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    We were surprised when community RWH -18 was shifted by the household without informing us , when visited and inquired they hare having vaasthu problem and the place will be widened to use as gate to house, after hours of discussion , they were ready to fix the tank behind the house, and they needed time till next month.

    we were upset on their action as each household are visited and involved in weekly meeting for thier consent to install the tanks and they remove because somebody said "Vaastu problem".

    we any how have shifted all the materials to the house hold who were in need and ready to rebuild in a week.

    Padma and Anusuya are coordinating the issue.
    All the toilets specially two toilets the connection was incomplete has been fixed and household people are started using.
