“SULABH JAL” – The Cheapest Drinking Water @ 50 paise per litre only- a pathbreaking step by well-known social scientist Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak was launched at Madhusudankati in North 24 Parangnas district, West Bengal. 

“The Water Purification Project” was launched by Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, Founder, Sulabh International Social Service Organisation at three locations – Madhusudankati in North 24 Parangnas district, Murshidabad in Murshidabad district and Mayapur in Nadia district on 24 November 2014.

Ground water in nine districts of West Bengal is estimated to have been severely affected by arsenic contamination. According to WHO, drinking arsenic-rich water over a long period results in various health hazards, including skin problems, skin cancer, cancer of the bladder, kidney and lung, besides other diseases. In many places of West Bengal, people are forced to drink arsenic-contaminated water. The 'Sulabh Drinking Water' project converts pond water into safe drinking water and will be sold at only 50 paise per litre. This will solve the problem," Dr. Pathak said.
