In the capitalist and highly industrial world, every major city has sanitation problem. Urbanization is challenged with evolving population as explosive; as the problem of sanitation is more serious than it appears to be, linked with various types of problems like socio-economic, health and hygiene etc. In Industrial towns, the most elementary traditions of municipal services are absent, slums faces problems related to open drainage, lack of water supply and lack of waste management. As per census of India 2011, access to sanitation is highly adequate in the urban areas , (19% of urban poor slums) where people defecate in the open, beside railway tracks etc and 42% have toilets but without flush all resulting to poor sanitation and various health problems. UNICEF 2006 report states – that as per India’s national Urban Sanitation Policy – there is loss of Rs.500 crore due to disease caused by poor sanitation for children under 14 yrs. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) extends to access to improved sanitation to at least urban population by 2015, where as GOI- defines waste management as the generation, prevention, characterization, monitoring, treatment, handling resue and residual disposal of solid waste, but against it the Indian municipalities are responsible for collecting, sweeping, storage and disposal of waste.These challenges are faced by urban cities regarding slums and waste disposal. As India is marching for Swachchh Bharat Mission not only proper disposal of waste is required but also a need for Nirmal State is mandatory( toilets in every house hold) The study focuses on the Nagar Nigam of Bhilai with the objective of awaring residents for the use of latrines (under IHHL scheme) and strategies opted by state Govt. And Waste management of the concerned areas
