Rural drinking water system: Lack of accountability of public engineers

In Padmakesharipur village in India, people have to walk 3 kilometres just to fetch drinking water for their daily needs. Those who can’t make the trip use local non-improved sources such as open ponds/ditches. There are public systems there that do not work. It is the responsibility of government engineers to fix them and oversee their upkeep. The residents have complained and petitioned them— and higher authorities—but to no avail.
