This Video Explains About Swachh Bharat Mission – Let’s Do our Duty

Swachh Bharat Mission is a massive mass movement that seeks to create a Clean India by 2019. The father of our nation Mr. Mahatma Gandhi always puts the emphasis on swachhta as swachhta leads to healthy and prosperous life. Keeping this in mind, the Indian government has decided to launch the swachh bharat mission on October 2, 2014.The mission will cover all rural and urban areas. The urban component of the mission will be implemented by the Ministry of Urban Development, and the rural component by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

Swachh Bharat Mission for Urban Areas

The programme includes elimination of open defecation, conversion of unsanitary toilets to pour flush toilets, eradication of manual scavenging, municipal solid waste management and bringing about a behavioural change in people regarding healthy sanitation practices.

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 town. 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 in designated locations such as tourist places, markets, bus stations, railway stations, etc. The programme will be implemented over a five-year period in 4,401 towns.

The total assistance available for construction of an individual toilet is Rs 4000/- from the Central Government and an amount of Rs 1333/- at least from the State Government. However in the case of the North East States, the states are required to contribute only Rs 400/- per individual toilet. However, there is no bar on releasing any extra funds at any stage by the ULB/State Government through additional resources.

The expected assistance for construction of community toilets - Central Government will contribute upto 40% of the cost of construction of community toilet as a VGF/ outright grant. As per SBM guidelines, the States/UTs shall provide an additional 13.33% for the said component. The NE and special category states shall be required to contribute 4% only. The balance shall have to be arranged through innovative mechanisms by the urban local body. The approximate cost per seat for a community toilet is Rs 65,000/-.

Rs 62,009 crore is likely to be spent on the programme. Of this, the Centre will pitch in Rs 14,623 crore. Of the Centre’s share of Rs 14,623 crore, Rs 7,366 crore will be spent on solid waste management, Rs 4,165 crore on individual household toilets, Rs 1,828 crore on public awareness and Rs 655 crore on community toilets.

The latrines is the main problems in the slums and in the other hand, people should first understand that the swachhta abhiyan started by our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Midi is neither a time pass nor a thing to waste money on. He has started this for the country's benefit. He is making Mahatma Gandhi's dream come true. All the people if can't clean their areas atleast can contribute to this abhiyan and then atleast not blame the administration for not cleaning their areas. The people in our country should first clean themselves. If people would feel that India is their house, then none of the people would throw garbage on the roads.

I am from south Mumbai. Born and bought up in a very small house. As the land on which my house is build belongs to the landlord of the side building next to my house. Being an individual house we had no toilet in the house. My family n myself use to go to the other building to use toilet. Now as I got married and have a 1year child, its too difficult to again adjust and go to the other building. So I made a small toilet and bathroom attached together inside my house. Now the point is one of the politician who's the resident of the building to which my house also belongs to is saying that's illegal. According to gandhiji and modiji I think I am not wrong. I would like modiji and people who read this post to support me. Jai hind.

There are many slums in Delhi. They can be find very easily. At the outskirts of posh area. Under the bridge. Etc. As also we can't make pkka toilet there. So, there should be vans" chlta firta shochalya" in slum areas.
