    Field Visit Report of Farida, Laltu, Biswajit and Shilpi

    From the beginning due to technical fault this well was not used. Projector program was done once before but the community is not concerned. The hand pump and the delivery pipe are stolen. Closure survey will be done but one more door-to-door campaign followed by another projector program will be done in October and November 2013 in this area where three more bi-tech wells have similar issues. It is assumed that two out of four, including this, may need to be closed down totally.
