Their role becomes significantly important considering severe capacity gap with different institution entrusted with the job. Therefore, it is imperative for the financial institutions to conduct a proper due diligence of a project before financing them. This will not only save them from reputational risk but also from financial risk.

The construction and management of OSS are left largely to ineffective local practices and there is lack of holistic septage management practices.
