Tea garden workers and ex-worker communities in Assam are set to witness a “clean” revolution in the garden areas. The tea tribes welfare department of the local government and Unicef have initiated the revolution and constructed 13,786 indoor toilets for the members of the communities in the last financial year in five Upper Assam districts – Dibrugarh, Tinsukia, Sivasagar, Jorhat and Golaghat. The programme has already shown a positive impact. There has been a substantial drop in malarial mortality rate in the garden areas, particularly in Sivasagar, Dibrugarh and Jorhat.
