We have been selected to provide support for establishment of Programme Management Unit (PMU) and to undertake all the tasks/activities listed in the guidelines issued for Swachh Bharat Mission by mobilizing all required resources. We will provide specialists in the categories of sanitation, water supply and sanitation, communication, MIS, support staff, etc. These specialists will provide technical, managerial, strategic and professional assistance at the state level for fulfilling the objectives of the Swachh Bharat Mission and state sanitation strategy. According to census 2011, India’s urban population is expected to increase to 600 million by 2031. The census also showed that in 4041 statutory towns, close to eight million households do not have access to toilets and defecate in the open. Weak sanitation has significant health costs and untreated sewage from cities is the single biggest source of water resource pollution in India. For ensuring hygiene, waste management and sanitation across the nation, Swachh Bharat Mission was launched, to be in force till 2nd October, 2019.
