SWACHH BHARAT ABHIYAAN
Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan aspires to make cleanliness a public movement rather than a Government mission by engaging every citizen of India in the process.
“We must not tolerate the indignity of homes without toilets and public spaces littered with garbage.
For ensuring hygiene, waste management and sanitation across the nation, a “Swachh Bharat Mission” launched
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (English: Clean India Mission and abbreviated as SBA or SBM for “Swachh Bharat Mission”) is a national campaign by the Government of India, covering 4,041 statutory cities and towns, to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country. This campaign aims to accomplish the vision of a ‘Clean India’ by 2 October 2019, the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. Specific objectives are:
The program plans to construct 12 crore toilets in rural India by October 2019, at a projected cost of Rs.1.96 lakh crore (US$29 billion).
SWACHH BHARAT MISSION (URBAN)
According to Census 2011, India’s urban population is 377 million or 31% of the total population. These numbers are expected to increase to 600 million by 2031.
SBM is being implemented by the Ministry of Urban Development (M/o UD) for urban areas. These guidelines are for the implementation of Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban).
The Census 2011 also showed that in 4,041 statutory towns, close to eight million households do not have access to toilets and defecate in the open (7.90 million).
Weak sanitation has significant health costs and untreated sewage from cities is the single biggest source of water resource pollution in India. This indicates both the scale of the challenge ahead of the Indian cities and the huge costs incurred from not addressing them.
