Nagpur Municipal Corporation seems to be taking good care of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Swacch Bharat Abhiyan”. The NMC has been working a lot with major steps taken to promote the mission in the city. Different methods and procedures have been applied by the corporation to promote it.
The corporation has been succeeded to bring the citizens to incorporate with the mission. Earlier the cleanliness was a major issue but steps have been taken by the NMC. now the situations are better and the city seems to improve its cleanliness score.
Providing toilet to the citizens of the city has been a major step to improve the cleanliness of the city. A large number of people has been benefited by Personal toilet. more than 13 thousand people have got their own personal toilet by the fund provided by the government. this has been an attempt to make the city open defecation free in which the corporation has succeeded. The government has already provided them with the title of Open Defecation Free city.
Though the city improves has been improving in terms of cleanliness and the open defecation has also decreased. There has been an improvement but yet there is a long road to go. The number of applications received to get a personal toilet was twice the number of candidates who actually received it. So others are still waiting for their turn to get their own personal toilet.
Along with the personal toilets, the corporation has also constructed multiple toilets throughout the city. twenty toilets have been constructed in slum areas and about 68 toilets have been constructed in other areas. Apart from that, five more toilets are still under construction which will be ready to use soon. The corporation is also getting the support of “Sulabh Sauchalaya” to improve the cleanliness of the city.
