Public Private Partnership In Rural W/S & Sanitation -Experiences Er. RP Gupta Executive Engineer, WSS Division No.3 SAS Nagar
My presentation covers our good experiences in using PPP in delivering outstanding service in the field of rural water supply and sanitation and our continuous efforts in this direction.
Fields of Public Private Partnership
1.RO based small WTPs 2.Water Supply Schemes 3.Sewerage Schemes
RO BASED SMALL WTPs
TDS/Uranium affected areas water scarcity areas to meet with the minimum drinking & cooking water requirements. RO based small WTPs have been installed in:
This PPP model is procured on “Concession model” principal where the system is build & operated (for 7 years) through competitive bidding & is then transferred to the owner i.e DWSS No other Private operator is allowed in the village for providing drinking water supply. GPWSC or any other agency can, however, supply water for other purposes. Procurement
Endeavoring for the maximum participation of the community through intensive IEC activities. Regular upkeep of the RO Plant. Proper disposal of reject water into nearby deep bore well/pond Selling potable water at plant site at all Rs 2/- per 20 ltr. Jerry Can/ bucket Duties of service provider
To Provide: A source of RAW water, however the water will be produced by the service provider. A Power Supply connection, however the electricity bill is to be paid by the service provider Land, free of cost, throughout the tenure of project. Duties of Department/ Gram Panchayat
Performance Guarantee for 7 years (% of Capital Cost) 1 st two years 20% 3 rd and 4 th years 15% 5 th, 6 th and 7 th year 10% Contract Performance Conditions- Financial
Number of units already in 686 Operation Number of units under 1125 Installation Total No. of Units likely to 1811 be in operation by March, 2012 Units in planning stage 65 Some statistics
For 1000 lph capacity plant year of Installation: 2009 Production : Litre 10Paisa per Litre Total Annual Income : Rs /- Annual Expenditure: Power cost : Rs 38000/- Average O&M cost : Rs 12000/- Total Salaries: Rs 30000/- Total Production cost : Rs 80000/- Saving per Annum: 25060/- Case Study
Successful And Satisfying
Water Supply Schemes
Part-1 O&M of Cluster of Schemes which are operated and maintained by DWSS
1 st Party: DWSS 2 nd Party : Contractor Procured on bi- party Agreement basis
Overseeing all aspects of O&M performed by contractor. Payment of electricity bills. Billing & Collection of water Revenue. Duties of 1 st Party i.e DWSS
Equitable distribution of Water Supply. Disconnection of illegal connections, if any. Making new connections (sanction and material to be arranged by the consumer) General upkeep of the installation Duties of 2nd Party i.e Contractor

Tenure of Agreement 4/ /2012. No of water schemes covered under one agreement : 42 (103 Villages) DescriptionY Y Expenditure Lac Lac (Upto November)( inclusive of annual 10%) Revenue Lac56.81 Lac % revenue50%55% Collected/ target Recovery ratio Case Study
Since the recovery ratio has remained the same(0.34) therefore some punitive/ motivational measures are required to be incorporated in the agreement for improving the ratio closest to 1, to make the system self sustainable
Part-2 Schemes handed over to GPWSC
Generally the O&M of such schemes is satisfactory but some times (in very few cases) due certain unavoidable reasons, the GPWSCs fail to run the schemes successfully. This PPP model has been developed to deal with such situations.
Lack of interest of some GPWSC members Groupism in Village hindering Sustainability. Lack of Technical know how. Non availability of technical man power in and around the village. Spoilt by free bees in the past, hence avoidance for payment of monthly water bills Some Identified Reasons

Fatehgarh Sahib Problem identified: Groupism (non payment of water bills, compelling chairman to pay from his pocket)
Though the model seem to successful but since it has been introduced only recently it thus still need to be evaluated comprehensively.

Administrative Sectary, Deptt. of Water Supply and Sanitation, Govt. of Punjab shall act as Arbitrator. Settlement of disputes
Since the schemes are yet to be commissioned hence the model will be evaluated in the due course of time.
Conclusion Although all the models are being implemented successfully but in order to still improve upon them the department proposed to appoint a consultant for which applications have already been received and are under process,
