There are 15,804 Member families in 537 functioning village CSUs (up 1,230 families and 6 villages from March 2002).
Only 13,471 (85%) families have paid up their Sangha Tax at the time of writing this Report (up 3,407 families from March 2002). These Coolie families are entitled to full programme benefits during this calendar year.
The number of Independent CSUs where we have completed our 9 year intervention for Coolie Sangha building has risen dramatically during the past year.
Coverage shows a big increase because it is now calculated within functioning villages and not the taluks as a whole, as was our practice hitherto. (Coverage in the entire region remains at 23%)
