The aim of this policy is to support the implementation of India's National Urban Sanitation Policy 2008 at state level for Rajasthan. It envisages improved health of the urban population, through sustainable sanitation services, protection of the environment and conservation of precious resources.

This policy frames guidelines for resource development and management, wastewater collection and treatment, onsite and offsite sanitation and safe reuse options. It also outlines roles of municipal local bodies and enumerates various sources of funding for sewage projects, pricing, financing and investment. The policy also includes guidelines for management of sewage projects through Public Private Partnership (PPP) including the hybrid annuity based PPP model. This policy also enumerates the standards, regulations and quality assurance by legislation and institutional arrangements and emphasises public awareness, human resource development and research and development by establishing a “State Water and Waste Water Training Center”.

The policy earmarks the Government of Rajasthan’s priorities along with the service level benchmarks and implementation plans for critical indicators like coverage of toilets and sewage network services, collection efficiency, extent of reuse and recycling of sewage and efficiency of redressal of customer complaints.
