Ensuring Accessible Safe Drinking Water Across The Underprivileged Groups Of People At Low Cost
Portable Purifier for Hand-pumps developed by Centre for Social Consulting India, Mumbai
At Inception, CSC India Team has designed “I” shape purifier for hand-pumps. There are absorbent beds that removes the 99% arsenic from the water and kill the bacteria instantly.

Post pilot changes were made in Prototype- 2
The changes were done in product design due to the following reasons:
