Government of India's decision to launch Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organisation (CPHEEO) website is sure to help all those who seek information related to urban water supply and sanitation.
The rapid growth of IT sector and its relevance in water supply and sanitation sector led to the task of CPHEEO website launch initiated in May 2005.
The website has links to CPHEEO-approved data collection formats which can easily be accessed by cities and towns to update the data periodically.
Efforts to make the dynamic part of website operational is also on. This includes a proposal for launching a scheme that would set up MIS cells at CPHEEO and state level. This scheme is forwarded by Working Group on Urban Development and has been accepted by Steering Committee in Planning Commission.
