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.

INDIAN RAILWAYS under our own honourable govt is the largest employer of manual scavengers. It is a matter of shame for our govt.
Our govt instead of concentrating on implementing bullet trains they should first focus on safety, security and cleanliness. Part of this the govt should take drastic steps to eliminate manual scavengers who may be utilized in unmanned railway crossing so that they become manned crossing.
