Sewage, an Indian term used to describe waste from sewage treatment plants, is being considered as an acceptable English word to describe sewage treatment plant cleaning work, a recent survey conducted by the National Institute of Public Administration found.
The survey, which was conducted by Public Knowledge, found that the usage of the term was “uncommon”, but “likely to increase”.
The survey also found that there was “a large overlap between sewage and sewage”.
The term has come under fire over the past two years after the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) accused India of not properly controlling the practice.
India’s Ministry of Environment and Forests and Ministry of Science and Technology, which is the custodian of India’s national sewage treatment systems, have blamed the CERD for the term’s usage.
In its latest report, CERd highlighted the fact that the government of India had failed to enforce its own regulations for sewage treatment work, while other countries, including China, have adopted a similar approach.
“The government has failed to address the issues around the misuse of the word sewage,” the report said.
India has made efforts to curb its use of the English term in its official language, which has become a common way of addressing waste, the report added.
However, India has a population of more than 2 billion, and has a lot of waste, and some countries, such as China, use different language in addressing their waste, which includes sewage.
China, which uses a similar language to India in its sewage treatment system, uses the word “yin” instead of “yang” when addressing sewage treatment.
A recent poll by the Economic Times found that in India, 80 percent of the respondents said they had never heard of the name “sewage”.
India has recently started using a new name for waste treatment plants: “sewabay”, or waste treatment facility, to denote sewage treatment facilities.
“We want to get rid of the usage and make it more common,” said Ramachandran Kaul, an official of the National Commission for the Prevention of Unnecessary Recycling, to The Indian Express.
