Manual scavengers are largely illiterate and have no exposure or aptitude for doing business or taking up self employment ventures.  This makes their rehabilitation in alternative occupations very challenging.

I still come across people (Manual Scavengers) at major junctions in Bangalore city waiting for house holds to call them for their services in cleaning the jammed toilets. Even after Supreme Court has banned manual scavenging, state governments / municipal authorities have not swung into action to identify the people working as manual scavengers and work towards their rehabilitation.
