Swachh Bharat Mission

(Clean India Mission)

Swachh Bharat Mission is a massive mass movement that seeks to build a clean India by 2019. Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi always stressed on cleanliness because cleanliness leads to a healthy and prosperous life. Keeping this in mind, the Government of India started the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2 October 2014. This mission covers all rural and urban areas. The urban component of the mission was implemented by the Ministry of Urban Development and the rural component by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

The mission aims to cover 1.04 crore households, provide 2.5 lakh community toilets, 2.6 lakh public toilets and a solid waste management facility in each city. Under the programme, community toilets will be built in residential areas where it is difficult to construct individual household toilets. Public toilets will also be constructed at designated places like tourist places, markets, bus stations, railway stations etc. The program will be implemented over a period of five years in 4,401 cities. Of the Rs 62,009 crore to be spent on the programme, the Center will spend Rs 14,623 crore. 7,366 crore to be spent on solid waste management, 4,165 crore to be spent on individual household toilets; 1,828 crore on public awareness and Rs 655 crore on community toilets.

The program includes the eradication of open defecation, conversion of insanitary latrines to flush latrines, eradication of manual scavenging, municipal solid waste management and behavioral change among people with respect to healthy sanitation practices.

The Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan has been reorganized into the Swachh Bharat Mission. The mission aims to make India an open defecation-free country in five years. Under the mission, a huge amount will be spent on the construction of about 11 crore 11 lakh toilets in the country. The technology will be used extensively to convert waste into wealth in rural India in the form of bio-fertilizers and various forms of energy. The mission is to be implemented on a war footing with the involvement of each and every Gram Panchayat, Panchayat Samiti and Zila Parishad in the country besides involving large sections of the rural population and school teachers and students in this effort.

As part of the mission, the provision for a unit cost of individual household toilets has been increased from ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 to provide availability of water, including storage, hand washing and cleaning of toilets, to rural households. The Centre’s share for such toilets will be 9,000, while the state’s share will be 3,000. For north-eastern states, Jammu and Kashmir and special category states, the central share will be 10,800 and the state share will be 1,200. Additional contributions from other sources would be permitted.

A ‘Clean India Run’ was organized at Rashtrapati Bhavan on 2 October 2014. Around 1,500 people participated and the event was flagged off by President Pranab Mukherjee, according to a Rashtrapati Bhavan statement. The participants in the run included officers and staff of the Secretariat, the President’s bodyguards, guards from the Army and the Delhi Police as well as their families. Ph D students of NIT Rourkela have made a short film on Swachh Bharat, giving the message that Swachh Bharat is not a one-day phenomenon. It should be a part of our life, then only we can achieve our goal of Swachh Bharat (Clean India).

The money will be used. To achieve the objective of improving the level of cleanliness in rural and urban areas including schools. The allocation from the fund will be used to supplement departmental resources for such activities. To encourage contributions from individuals and corporates, modalities for providing tax exemptions wherever possible are being considered. 0 0 0.
